Relics

Since 1844 the Sisters of the Precious Blood have served God’s people in the United States in fields of education, pastoral ministry, health care and social services: in schools, orphanages, nursing homes, parishes and seminaries. Their ministries have spread the influence and spirituality of the Sisters of the Precious Blood to many states in this country, to Guatemala in Central America, and to Chile in South America.

The Maria Stein Shrine is the second largest collection of Holy Relics of Saints in the United States, holding over 1,000 relics on display including relics of the True Cross.

The process of becoming a Saint does not usually begin until five years after his or her death, which allows time for the person's virtuous and saintly reputation to grow.
