New York Church Installs Shrine to Blessed Clelia

Published: October 7, 2020

A beautiful shrine dedicated to Blessed Clelia Merloni, foundress of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, was installed at Immaculate Conception Church in Tuckahoe, New York, where Sr. Cora Lombardo, ASCJ, serves as Director of Religious Education. 

The shrine features a first-class relic from Blessed Clelia’s body, in which we have embedded a wooden mission lamp, and a rendering of her portrait on talavera tiles.

The shrine was unveiled and blessed on October 17, 2020. The Apostles are grateful to Rev. Anthony Sorgie, pastor of Immaculate Conception and Assumption of Our Lady parish, for encouraging devotion to Blessed Clelia and sharing her charism.
