Rosanna has created commemorative pieces for Pope Francis’ upcoming Philadelphia, PA visit. The Pope will be attending the Pontifical Council’s World Meeting of Families (WMOF) September 22 to 25 and the Papal Visit September 26 to 27.
Original pieces include porcelain mugs, trays and votive holders featuring messages about the importance of family. WMOF organizers commissioned designs from Rosanna after seeing commemorative products made by Rosanna at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City.
“We are very humbled and honored to design for such an important world leader who carries a message of hope and peace for all,” said company president and art director, Rosanna Bowles.
The September WMOF summit will mark Pope Francis’s first papal visit to the U.S., making him the fourth pope to visit the U.S. in the nation’s history.
