The Roman Catholic bishops' conference have invested some of their best people and resources in this series of events next year, and they are building to it as a real missional and evangelistic opportunity.
The relics are contained in a large, sealed casket, which will be taken round over 20 churches in England and Wales. They will remain in each place for between one and three days.
In each venue the casket will be placed on display in a prominent place. There will be a Mass and other services each day, but most of the time will be left free for people to come and venerate the relics and pray for whatever is in their hearts.
Stewards will direct you in an orderly way to come and venerate the relics. How you do that is entirely up to you. Some people like to kiss the casket, or place their hands reverently upon it, while others may prefer just to pray quietly for a few moments.
There will also be plenty of priests available to hear your Confession or give spiritual advice.
