Guadalupe House Speaking Presentations


A speaking presentation at St. George Church, Waimanalo (01/2010)

This ministry conducts speaking presentations aimed at spreading devotion to Our Lady and the Saints of the Catholic Faith and their respective Holy Relics.  These presentations are ideal for parish groups/associations, for youth groups (ages 14+), and for RCIA/Confirmation-related classes. Information concerning these presentations are detailed below:


SAINTS & HOLY RELICS PRESENTATION

Objectives:
  • To share the biblical and historical background on the Catholic Church’s teachings about the concept of Sainthood and the veneration of Holy Relics
  • To share the steps involved in the Canonization Process, that the Church strictly follows in recognizing its Saints
  • To share the inspirational lives of several Saints and other Catholic spiritual role-models with an emphasis on the lives of modern Saints and candidates for Sainthood
  • To share several authentic Holy Relics for the public veneration of the Faithful, so as to encourage devotion to the Saints and Blesseds, and their hallowed remains
