Feast of San Expedito

Monday, April 19, 2021
  • At Inmaculado Corazón de María church in Tucumán, Argentina, devotees like to touch the glass encasing the statue of San Expedito, and may wait hours in line for the opportunity, leaving some flowers or other gift behind.

San Expedito is a saint popular among the poor in Northern Argentina and Chile, and is known for responding quickly to the prayers of those in dire need. While his feast day falls on April 19, he is venerated on the 19th of every month at a parish shrine in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina.
