Remembrance card, Sts. Peter and Paul Church, 2005

Item 18387 info
Franco-American Collection

A card marks the Mass of Thanksgiving on May 22, 2005 for the Saints Peter and Paul Church when it became a basilica.

With its designation as a basilica, Sts. Peter and Paul was granted its own papal coat of arms that shows the crossed keys of Saint Peter and the pilgrim's canopy -- the Ombrellino.

The fleur-de-lys represents the French-
Canadian heritage of the people who built the church.
