*The relics of St Peter Canisius, a zealous preacher and defender of the faith during the Counter-Reformation, lie under the main altar of this church.
*In order to make his relics more accessible there is a possibility that his relics may be transferred in the near future. If this occurs his relics would be transferred just a few blocks away to the Cathédrale Saint-Nicolas in Fribourg.
