MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A relic of St. Anthony of Padua, one of Christianity's most beloved saints, is coming to Westchester County when it is displayed in St. Ursula's Church in Mount Vernon on Wednesday, June 11.
Coinciding with the week of St. Anthony's Feast Day, which is celebrated on June 13, St. Ursula's will hold a veneration of the relic at 5 p.m., followed by a mass at 7 p.m.
