Archdiocese statement on return of the Relic of the True Cross

"Our prayers have been answered as the Relic of the True Cross has been recovered. We are grateful for the great work of the Boston Police Department in their search for the relic. Their professional and diligent work made this effort successful. We also extend our appreciation to the Vermont State Police who assisted in the recovery effort. God has blessed us with His love and capacity to forgive.  We prayerfully carry on His call for forgiveness for those responsible."

Media note:  Each week a prayer service has been held at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross for the return of the relic since it was stolen. This Wednesday, August 18 at 7:30pm, we will welcome the return of the Relic of the True Cross to the Cathedral.
