Amazing. The cathedral in Toronto has a relic of St Jude as well.

St. Hyacinth's has the best collection of relics I've ever seen in a 1950's church. Come to think of it, the whole diocese is rather well stocked. No less than three relics of the True Cross, and keeping up to date with two first class relics of St. Faustina. There's even a piece of one of St. Francis' habits, but I haven't seen it yet.

I have to say thank you for these lovely pictures of St. Hyacinth. I grew up in that parish and have many fond memories of the neighborhood. In fact, I was one of the first children baptized in the "new" church in January 1960. Stumbled on your site googling for some information about the neighborhood since I'm involved in some family history/genealogy efforts. Your photo of the interior does it justice. Thanks for the memories!
