Beatification Claretian Martyrs

6 May 2017

We share in the joy of our Claretian Family! The Vatican confirmed on May 4, 2017, the date of the Beatification of Mateo Casals, Teófilo Casajus, Fernando Saperas and 106 companion Claretian Martyrs. It will be on October 21, 2017. The celebration will be presided by Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, in the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

We thank God for this Beatification and we renew our commitment to make this event an opportunity for us all to grow in the missionary vocation.
