St Therese is sometimes referred to as the "little flower"
Pilgrims have been flocking to St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham for the arrival of the relics of a 19th Century French saint.
A casket containing the remains of St Therese of Lisieux will be on display at the cathedral on Derby Road in the city centre until 1200 BST on Tuesday.
The visit is part of a 28-stop nationwide tour of the relics that continues until 16 October.
The tour has attracted queues of up to 8,000 people.
Bishop Malcolm McMahon said everyone - Catholic and non-Catholic - was welcome to visit the relics.
He said: "As patroness of the missions, St Therese of Lisieux reminds us that it is up to all of us to go and teach the Gospel.
"Her life and writings emphasise that whatever our state in life, even if we're unable to make big gestures, we can be bearers of God's love and mercy.
"If you are not a Catholic, come and see. A warm welcome awaits you."
Special services and vigils are taking place through the night at St Barnabas to mark the occasion.
St Therese was a French Carmelite nun who died of tuberculosis in 1897 aged 24.
She came to wider attention after her autobiography was published and was described by Pope Pius X as "the greatest saint of modern times".
So far her relics have been to 42 countries in 15 years.
