A reliquary is a container for relics. A portable reliquary may be called a fereter, and a chapel in which it is housed a feretory. Relics may be the purported or actual physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or other religious figures.

First-class relics are a part of the saint’s body, usually a piece of bone or hair. Praying to a first-class relic is a powerful way to ask for that Saint’s intercession to bring their prayers to God. A third-class relic is created by touching an object, such as a crucifix, to one of the first-class relics in prayer. Learn more about each of the three saints and visit the chapel to pray to their relics in person.
