The relics of St Therese of Lisieux came to St Mary's Cathedral in Coulby Newham from Friday 2 October until Saturday 3 October, 2009.
The Bishop anointing the sick and elderly
The relics are said to give a renewed sense of vocation, and came to Teesside as part of their UK tour.
The Bishop was also on hand to anoint the sick and elderly worshippers.
Despite the bad weather, large crowds turned up to venerate the relics, which were open to the public from 2pm on Friday until 12noon on Saturday.

When I arrived at the cathedral I was surprised to see it packed and people waiting outside.
Many were there because they or someone they knew were ill and were hoping for comfort or as one lady put it, "Miracles can happen, can't they?"
