Orders: We are almost caught up with our mailings and will be accepting new orders soon.

ALERT: Please be aware of the "Holy Face of Manoppello" hoax making the rounds on the Internet and in recent books. This has nothing to do with the Holy Face devotion as outlined on this website. Please see our article, "The Holy Face of Manoppello Hoax" for more information.

ALERT: Please be aware that there may possibly be fake Holy Face relics being circulated. A true Holy Face relic should always contain a certificate of authenticity (usually in Latin) along with one or more red wax seals. However, it may still be possible for someone to create counterfeit relics. This is one reason why the Catholic Church forbids the buying and selling of relics (simony). In some cases today, some clergy have permitted the "rescuing" of relics where the seller is a non-Catholic and purchaser is a Catholic who will properly venerate  and take care of the relic, but as a rule, the trafficking of relics is  forbidden by the Catholic Church. You should obtain permission from your priest or bishop before "rescuing" a relic from a non-Catholic, and beware that it may be difficult to determine if it is authentic.  If you plan to purchase a Holy Face relic, be sure to compare it to the images submitted to our website under the Holy Face Images button. If there is any doubt, the potential relic should be avoided.

Volunteers: We are currently managing well with our current volunteers for making chaplets. The primary area where we need volunteers at the moment is with pamphlet translations. See our Holy Face Pamphlet page for details.
