About These Relics

These relics (adorn the chapel walls at St. Michael’s) are of high honor within the Church as most of them are First Class Relics. The Catholic Church classifies its relics in three classes. First-Class Relics are relics of a particle or part of the body of the saint him/herself. Second-Class Relics are relics of an item that the saint used or owned. Third-Class Relics are relics of any object that were touched to a first- or second-class relic.
