Brick, New Jersey: Shrine of Bl Carlo Acutis in Saint Dominic’s Church

About the Shrine of Carlo Acutis in Saint Dominic’s Church:

On October 1, 2023, after Mass concluded, the mother of Carlo Acutis, Salzano Acutis, took a relic of her son from the hands of Bishop David O’Connell of the Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey, and together they processed to the narthex, where a new shrine to Carlo Acutis was blessed.

In her remarks to the faithful gathered for the celebration, Salzano Acutis declared: “Sainthood is for everyone. Carlo became a saint by practicing the seven theological and cardinal virtues.” She emphasized: “This is what makes us all saints.”

Carlo prayed the Rosary and read sacred Scripture every day,” she shared. “He went to confession each week. Since his holy Communion at 7 years old, he never missed daily Mass. Before Mass or after, he would also spend time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Carlo believed the Eucharist was his ‘highway to heaven.’”
