The Vatican Returns to Duluth
(218) 723-6000 • Visit Website
Organizers encourage individuals and organizations that are interested in attending to save the date and make plans soon. Open to the public, The Vatican Returns to Duluth will include the artifacts themselves, a Vatican store, a sponsors’ gala dinner, and a wine and cheese night (both events with guest speakers), to name just a few of the festivities being planned. Father Kunst has always had a mission to educate people about the Church. It is his conviction that “you cannot love what you know little about. The Collection is an enjoyable, informative and sacred tool to help with that.” The Vatican Comes to Duluth 2004 was an exhibit of Father Richard Kunst’s papal artifacts collection, believed to be the largest collection of papal memorabilia in North America. It featured manuscripts, clothing, relics, Swiss Guard items and other rarities connected to the papacy, canonized saints and notable individuals. Father Kunst started the Collection while working for the U.S. Senate. Over the years, it continued to grow and became so substantial that colleagues encouraged him to share these significant artifacts through a public viewing. The year 2004 was chosen for this spectacular event, because it commemorated the end of Pope John Paul II’s Jubilee Year. The Collection has grown substantially since 2004 and now includes items from Pope Francis to Pope St. Victor I (189-199 A.D.) and even a relic from the original chair of St. Peter himself. Proceeds will benefit Stella Maris Academy, the Catholic schools of Duluth, MN. A portion of the proceeds will also be used for the education of seminarians. The Vatican Returns to Duluth is co-sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica, which is excited to renew its commitment as it did with the original The Vatican Comes to Duluth 2004. Held at Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (city Side), 350 Harbor Drive in Duluth
