In pictures: Relic of Blessed Carlo Acutis at St Paul's in west Belfast

The relic of the 15-year-old Carlo Acutis was brought to Ireland for three days by Monsignor Anthony Figueiredo. Crowds of people, including groups of school children, have been visiting St Paul's on the Falls Road to see the relic. Blessed Carlo was beatified by Pope Francis on October 10 2020, becoming the first millennial to be declared 'Blessed' by the Catholic Church. Pictures by Mal McCann
