July 26, 2016 - August 14, 2016 A Pilgrimage of the Relics of St. Maximilian Kolbe, OFM Conv.
2016 marks the 75th Anniversary of the martyrdom of St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Franciscan Friar, at the World War II concentration camp in Auschwitz, Poland.

St. Maximilian demonstrated heroic charity by giving his life in place of a fellow prisoner who was about to be executed. St. John Paul II declared St. Maximilian Kolbe the "patron saint of our difficult century," and a Martyr of Charity.

St. Maximilian Kolbe is the patron saint of prisoners, journalists, families, the pro-life movement and the chemically addicted.

To commemorate this historic anniversary, the Franciscan Friars Conventual of the Our Lady of the Angels Province, in concert with Kolbean institutes and Franciscans worldwide, are pleased to sponsor a pilgrimage of St. Maximilian's relics.

July 26, 2016 - November 20, 2016 The Holy Door at the Shrine of St. Anthony Questions & Answers
The Holy Door at the Shrine of St. Anthony was opened on Sunday December 13th by Fr. Michael and the Friars, and will remain open until Sunday November 20, 2016 when the Year of Mercy closes. The Holy Door is located in front of the Shrine building down the steps of the piazza and through the wrought iron doorway on the left side. The doorway is flanked by boxwood topiary and topped with a Tau Cross. The Holy Door at the Shrine of St. Anthony is available daily from dawn to dusk for everyone to walk through.

What is the symbolism of the Holy Door?
A Holy Door is open only during a Jubilee Year, typically every 25 years. Pope Francis said, "On that day, the Holy Door will become a Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope."

We Catholics use symbols. We use what we can see to encounter what we can't see. The waters of Baptism are used to wash and give new life. A huge candle at Easter is used to symbolize Christ Risen. We mark ourselves with the sign of the Cross to symbolize taking up our Cross and following Jesus.

Doors are very symbolic. They can represent passage: from cold to warmth, from aloneness to belonging, from the old to the new, from doubt to faith. Jesus describes himself as The Door and invites us to pass through Him to the heart of the Father. He says, "Whoever enters through Me will be safe. They will find life. For I came that you might have life and have it to the full." Jesus is the door Who leads to salvation. To walk through the Holy Door is symbolic of our entering and resting safely in the merciful love and life of God.

The doors of a Church mark the boundary where the ordinary becomes the extraordinary. By throwing them open (and on the anniversary of the Council, no less), Pope Francis is emphasizing his desire to throw open the doors of the faith to the world.

What do I get - Indulgence?
The word indulgence is meant to express the indulgent and lavish mercy that our Father God pours on us, His children. Though we children sometimes stray, God's love is everlasting. In the Old Testament Book of Hosea, God says, "My mercy toward you grows warm and tender."

To receive a full indulgence (called a plenary indulgence), you must:
1. Walk through the Holy Doors
2. Go to confession
3. Receive Communion
4. Pray for the intentions of the Pope

We welcome everyone to visit the Shrine of St. Anthony during this Jubilee Year of Mercy and walk through the Holy Door, go to confession, attend daily Mass at 12 noon, and pray for the intentions of Pope Francis.

The Shrine grounds are open from dawn to dusk and include several prayer paths, the grotto, outdoor Stations of the Cross, the Shrine to St. Maximilian Kolbe, and much more.

Eucharistic Adoration on Thursdays

All are welcome to spend time with the Lord during Eucharistic Adoration each Thursday from after the noon Mass until 5:30pm.

Thursday is traditionally the Eucharistic Day in the Catholic Church as it is the day our Lord gave us His Body and Blood at the Last Supper. It is also the day the friars and postulants at St. Joseph Cupertino Friary, of which the Shrine of St. Anthony is part, celebrate a holy hour. In addition, all the friars of the St. Anthony Province (all of the East Coast) celebrate a holy hour for vocations on the third Thursday of each month. The friars are encouraged to invite our brothers and sisters who come to their ministries to participate in this prayerful experience.

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed following the noon Mass. There will be time for quiet adoration until 4:30pm. At that time, the friars and all present will begin their evening prayers, which include the Liturgy of the Hours (psalms), quiet time, Scripture reading, intercessory prayer, and Benediction.
