INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION COMES TO NORWICH AUGUST 15th - SEPT 21st The Eucharistic Miracles of the World, an exhibit created and designed by Blessed Carlo Acutis, the first millennial to be beatified in the Catholic Church in 2020, will be on display at St Bartholomew's Parish Center for 6 weeks starting August 15th. This event, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council 211 in Norwich, is free and open to the public. The exhibit traveling the Diocese of Syracuse contains historical descriptions, photographs, and illustrations that help increase belief in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. ln some cases, it has been scientifically proven to be real human tissue and blood. Blessed Carlo who started going to daily mass at age 7 and was researching Eucharistic miracles around the world by age 11 developed a website to share the power of the Eucharist with others. ln 2006 at age 15, Acutis was diagnosed with leukemia, and although he passed away, his love of God continues to inspire others. The exhibit will feature over 70 Eucharistic Miracles, from around the world including Italy, where Carlo Acutis was raised. It so happens that St Bart's Church, which was built by ltalian immigrants, is celebrating it's 100th anniversary this year and a big celebration is planned.
