St. Camillus, patron saint of the sick and those who care for them.        And the precious relic, the heart of St. Camillus.

This year the members of the Order of St. Camillus in Killucan, and in other centres in the country, celebrate the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the Camillians in Ireland.

A key part of the celebrations will be arrival in Ireland next week of the most coveted relic - the heart - of the Italian Patron of the Sick. The visit to Ireland of this precious relic will commence with public veneration and blessings for four days at the St. Camillus Chapel & Nursing Centre in Killucan - this will be only the third time ever that the relic has left Italy.

In a singular tribute to the St. Camillus priests and brothers in Killucan - which is the Anglo-Irish provincial headquarters of the Order, for Ireland, Britain and Australia - the incorrupt heart of St Camillus will be with the community in Killucan for the Feast of St. Camillus this year, Wednesday 14 July, and for the three days immediately beforehand, when the annual Triduum leading up to the Feast is celebrated, on Sunday 11 July, Monday 12 July & and Tuesday 13 July.

All members of the public will be able to visit the relic of St. Camillus - his heart, which miraculously is in its incorrupt state, even after hundreds of years - in the chapel in the St. Camillus Centre from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on each of the four days.

Mass will be celebrated at 7:00pm on each of the four days and the Mass on Wednesday, July 14, the Feast of St. Camillus, will be celebrated by the Bishop of Meath, Most Rev. Dr. Michael Smith.


Meanwhile, the altar area and sanctuary in the St. Camillus Chapel in Killucan is one of 12 throughout Ireland which can be viewed ‘live’ throughout every day, anywhere in the world, via the internet.

Mass can be viewed ‘live’ at 10.30am daily from the St. Camillus Chapel, as well as other ceremonies, and the visit of the relic of St. Camillus will also be viewed ‘live’.

The ‘live’ view of ceremonies and of the interior of the St. Camillus Chapel can be viewed on the Order’s website (weblink here).
