What is the oldest church in Des Moines? Ambrose Cathedral (Des Moines, Iowa)
Where are the relics of St Ambrose? Until the Second World War, the relics were kept in a frame mounted to an altar in the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio; they then got new glass frames in the Basilica’s museum, where they remained until a few years ago. To protect them from the light they were then placed in storage drawers.
Who is buried with St Ambrose? Ambrose rests. Following his death by natural causes, he was buried, as was his wish, alongside Gervasius and Protasius, two decapitated martyrs, two soldiers in the service of the Emperor.
