1995 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Blessed Maria Helena Stollenwerk, the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit

Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of a bone) relics of the Blessed Maria Helena Stollenwerk. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. M. Helenae Stollenwerk (the Blessed Maria Helena Stollenwerk).  On the back, under the protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Institute of the Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit of Perpetual Adoration. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 1993 (the year of his beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order.

Blessed Helena Stollenwerk (†1900) was a German Roman Catholic and a professed member of the Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit of Perpetual Adoration under the religious name of "Maria Virgo". Stollenwerk collaborated with Arnold Janssen and Hendrina Stenmanns and co-founded the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit. Pope John Paul II presided over the beatification celebration for Stollenwerk in 1995 after naming her a Servant of God on 2 April 1982 and as Venerable in 1991.
