Eucharistic Miracles exhibit available for parishes and schools
The International Eucharistic Miracles of the World exhibit, which was designed and created by Blessed Carlo Acutis, is composed of about 160 panels that include beautiful images and detailed descriptions of Eucharistic miracles that have occurred throughout the centuries in many countries around the world. St. Philip Church in Linesville has a copy of this exhibit (due in large part to a generous REEF grant) which is available for parishes and schools in the Diocese of Erie to borrow free of charge.  The exhibit is stored in three boxes and two bins for easy transport.  For more information about the exhibit, please visit the website at: https://stspeterphilip.com/miracles-exhibit.html or email Amanda at eucharistic.miracle.exhibit@gmail.com. See flier for details.
