Basilica catacombs

In the Basilica catacombs,covered with a network of corridorsleading to the burial crypts, there are graves of Lviv metropolitans transferred there after the Second World War from other different Lviv churches due to the threat of Soviet desecration. The grave of the archbishop Boleslaw Twardowski (1865 - 1944) containing the relics of the priest originally placed in the Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn church established by him really deserves attention. Or graves of other hierarchs of XIX century buried in the seminary church of Our Lady of the Candles also worth attention. The tidying up of the catacombs’ crypts and opening it up for prayer and for visit will be planned as soon as possible.
