Update Feb 18: Here are some video and interviews from the relic showing.
Well that's understandable. Father David Farrugia, the pastor, tells me that the phone has been ringing off the hook, with interested parties from all over the Bay Area wanting information on the viewing. The relic is purportedly a piece of the tibia (shinbone) of the biblical figure Mary Magdalene. It first went on tour in the U.S. in 2009. Earlier this week, it was shown at parishes in Oakland and Antioch. After the Berkeley viewing, it will travel to the South Bay, the Oakland Tribune reports, before moving on to Southern California.
Father Farrugia gave the following schedule for today:
1 p.m. The relic arrives followed by a presentation
