Procession and Reinterment of the relics of St.s Magnus & Bonosa…

This weekend saw a celebration of historic proportions here at the parish: the reinterment of our two saints, Magnus and Bonosa. St. Martin’s has been home to the full skeletal remains of two third century Roman martyrs since 1901. Their resting places – underneath the two side altars in the front of the church – were in need of repair and therefore the relics needed to be moved to complete that work. The opportunity was taken (with appropriate ecclesiastical approbation) to remove them from their reliquary cases and to undertake a study of the relics themselves.
