Westminster Cathedral welcomes 'The Life of a Swiss Guard, a Private View'. The exhibition will be opened at 6.30pm on Tuesday 14 November by His Excellency Archbishop Edward Adams, Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain. Joining him will be Colonel Chrisoph Graf, current Commander of the Pontifical Swiss Guard, and Dr Romina Cometti, curator of the exhibition.
The display will feature photographs by Fabio Mantegna, and exhibits of uniforms and artefacts documenting the long history of the Swiss Guards. The images and exhibits are accompanied by comments and reflections by the Swiss Guards on their work and experience, providing a deeper understanding of the life and vocation of the men whose task it is to guard the Holy Father.
The exhibition will run until 13 December in the Chapels of St Patrick and St Gregory and St Augustine in Westminster Cathedral.
