Can someone please tell me how to find out which saints or martyrs relics are in our parish altar. I have asked our priest but he is not sure either. I belong to st michaels parish in redhill durban south africa
Welcome. John is correct, the parish is required to keep an inventory of all such things and they are reviewed by the bishop when he makes his Canonical visit to the Church usually once a year, depending on the distance and number of churches he has to visit in a year. While some Churches after Vatican II did not place relics in the altar, as it was no longer manditory, many still did.
