Knights of Columbus holding nationwide tour of Curé of Ars Heart

The Shrine of Ars, France, has entrusted to the Knights of Columbus the major relic of St. Jean Vianney’s incorrupt heart for a national tour in the U.S., from November 2018 through early June 2019.

The Knights of Columbus welcomes this special opportunity to offer for veneration a major relic of the patron of parish priests, whose holiness and integrity is a model for clergy and laity alike.

Please find below the pilgrimage’s schedule and resources for the pilgrimage. The schedule will be updated as new locations are added. Please return to this website for schedule details, which will be added as they become available.

For questions, please email

To donate to the shrine of Ars, which is renovating its welcome center to provide pilgrims a first-class religious experience, please click here.

The Knights of Columbus are supporting the cost for the St. Jean Vianney Relic Pilgrimage. All donations made through this site will be sent to the St. Jean Vianney Shrine in Ars, France for capital improvement.


Call to Action

This past Monday, House Bill 500 passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on an 11-8 vote. This bill, recognizing that there is a point at which unborn children can feel pain, aims to prohibit abortions of unborn children 20 weeks post-fertilization or older except in cases where there is a serious health risk to the mother. The bill will be debated and voted on by the full House very shortly and we need YOU to contact your state representative to urge a "yes" vote on this very important legislation.

The Montana Catholic Conference (MCC) testified before the House Judiciary Committee urging support for this bill stating, in part:

"It is tragic and gravely wrong that courts have decided to only allow states to protect some unborn children and not all of them. However, if courts continue to insist on basing protections for the unborn on certain stages or levels of human development, then the ability to feel pain provides a more reasonable and well-founded basis than does viability."

To listen to the complete testimony provided by the MCC in support of HB 500, please click here. (MCC testimony begins at roughly the 10:22 mark). To read the testimony provided by the MCC, please click here.

To listen to the committee vote and discussion during executive action, please click here. (Discussion of HB 500 begins at roughly the 11:36 mark).
Please urge your state representative to VOTE YES on HB 500!

Help is needed!

A powerful, deadly cyclone has devastated families, cities and towns through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Cyclone Idai is feared to have claimed hundreds of lives—leaving thousands of families without shelter and in need of the most basic relief.
Right now, CRS is working with local partners across the three countries to identify people’s most pressing needs—prioritizing food assistance, shelter, clean water, hygiene kits and basic supplies. 
With many areas still inaccessible due to collapsed bridges, blocked roads and broken communications systems, the severity of destruction is not fully known. But, it is anticipated that hundreds of thousands of people will need urgent relief.
It will be a long, hard road to recovery— but you can be there with them. You can help.
It’s been years since this part of Southern Africa experienced a natural disaster of this magnitude. They weren't prepared for this.
When you give, your gifts will provide food, shelter and basic lifesaving goods to those suffering.
