Solemn Mass & Holy Burning: Reverent Disposal of Old Bibles and Blessed Items

June 23, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Celebrate the Nativity of John the Baptist with Mass and the age old tradition of disposing of unwanted blessed objects on this day through a sacred fire. Bring unwanted Bibles, broken rosaries, holy cards, statues, etc. Burnable items will be placed in a blessed fire. The rest will be taken away and buried in sacred soil (church grounds).

Pro tip: Come early and check out the holy items that are being disposed. You might even find at item or two to rescue and to use for your own devotions.

Note: We are not able to take holy objects to be disposed ahead of time. Instead, please bring them with you to the event.
