UMBRELLINO: To keep the sun and the rain from the pope, a staff person carried an umbrella over him when he walked in the streets of Rome. Ours is displayed on the east side of the church. The eight tabs display symbols of importance in the Parish's history. They include, the Basilica Crest, the Polish Eagle, the Crest of Pope Benedict XVI, the Crest of Bishop John Quinn, the Crest of the Diocese of Winona, the Crest of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the Crest of Pope John Paul II, & Princess Wenonah. The cover of the umbrelllino was designed by Deacon Michael Balfour of Atlanta and sewn under his direction.
