“The Communion of Saints” depicts 135 saints and blesseds in the nave of the cathedral—showing that worshippers are truly surrounded by the Communion of Saints, a host of witnesses.

The tapestries were designed and created by artist John Nava. The weaving was done from digital files by the Flanders Tapestries mill near Bruges, Belgium.
