Yesterday, on the Feast of St. Sebastian, Deacons Ben Hadrich and Ben Kociemba made a special visit to the Catacombs of St. Sebastian, just outside the city of Rome, near the Catacombs of St. Callistus which the class visited last week. The Deacons were able to attend a special procession with the relics of St. Sebastian, which are only brought out for public veneration once every year, on the feast day of the Saint.
