Holy Trinity Grad Travels Across Canada with Relic of St. Francis Xavier

Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School graduate from 2016, D’Arcy Murphy, is currently on a pilgrimage tour travelling across Canada with a relic of St. Francis Xavier.

The relic is a forearm of St. Francis Xavier, which is 465 years old. The relic rarely tours, as it has a permanent place at the main Jesuit church in Rome. 

D'Arcy has accompanied the relic as a missionary with Catholic Christian Outreach, a university student movement dedicated to evangelization. He is currently a University of Ottawa student, but has taken a semester off to accompany the relic.

D'arcy has embarked on this 14-city tour on January 3 through February 2, 2018, visiting destinations across Canada.
