|Photos from the day and night of the day the Prince of Peace Memorial was dedicated at the Mission of Nombre de Dios.|
In 1965, St. Augustine, Florida, celebrated the 500th birthday of its founding. As part of that celebration, the Mission de Nombre de Dios, site of the first Mass said in what is now the continental United States, erected a giant 200-foot cross and built a new chapel, the Prince of Peace Memorial. My Catholic high school choir sang at its dedication, and I took the opportunity to take photos.
