The St. Francis Xavier Relic two-day visit to Regina attracted more than 3,000 people to the two locations where it was displayed.
An estimated 450 people visited the Campion College chapel at the University of Regina over the course of a 12-hour vigil and about 2,400 attended at Resurrection Church over a 10-hour vigil there. Campion was an obvious choice for the visit as St. Francis Xavier was a co-founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuit order).
The vigil at Campion College began at 7 p.m. Friday, January 19 and remained exposed to 9 a.m. Saturday, January 20, when it was taken down and moved to Resurrection Church for a 10 a.m. mass to begin the 10-hour vigil there. At 9 p.m. the reliquary beside the Campion chapel altar was moved away and a monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament was placed in the centre of the altar and remained exposed along with the St. Francis Xavier Relic until 9.a.m. Saturday.
