1933 Documented theca with a relic of St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, founder of the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd

Round glass-fronted silver reliquary theca housed in a clasped pendant and containing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) pre-canonization relic of St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a manuscript cedula label as Ex oss. B. Euphrasiae V. (of the bone of the Blessed Euphrasia).  The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed on April 30, 1933 (the very day of her beatification) by the Postulator General of the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd.

St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier (†1868) was a French Roman Catholic nun, best known as the foundress of the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd. The Sisters of Our Lady of Charity provided shelter, food, vocational training, and an opportunity for these girls and women to turn their lives around. Pelletier was beatified on April 30, 1933, and canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1940. Her feast day is 24 April.
