1985 Documented reliquary theca with relic of St. Conrad of Parzham, O.F.M. Cap.

Round glass-fronted white-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of St. Conrad of Parzham. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on typeset cedula label as S. Conr. a Parz. (St. Conrad of Parzham) 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 Postulator General of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued by the Order in 1985. 

Saint Conrad of Parzham, O.F.M. Cap. (†1894), was a German Franciscan lay brother who served for over 40 years in the post of porter of the Capuchin friary in Altötting, through which work he gained a widespread reputation for his wisdom and holiness. During his lifetime, Conrad was reputed to have been able to read the hearts of those he met, and he was attributed with the gift of prophecy. His heroic virtues and the miracles he performed won for him the distinction to be ranked among the Blessed by Pope Pius XI in 1930. Four years later, the same pope, approving additional miracles which had been performed, solemnly inscribed his name in the list of saints. He is the patron saint of the Mid-America Province of Capuchin Friars and his feast is celebrated on 21 April.
