Despite the destruction of 1940, the church of St. Peter has preserved some old pieces of liturgical textiles, saved from the disaster. Both the provisional church and the restored building, which was reopened for worship in 1952, have reconstituted an impressive wardrobe, with several hundred pieces.

Through three exhibitions, from 2020 to 2022, a few pieces of these ornaments, ranging from the 18th to the 21st century, will be presented in the Sainte-Barbe chapel, which for the occasion will be transformed into a gigantic showcase.

The exhibition "De blanc et d'or", the final part of the trilogy, is devoted to textiles used for festive occasions. This is by far the most important section of the St Peter's collection: some twenty-two vestments - including chasubles, dalmatic robes, stoles, maniples, chalice veils, burselets - a number of copes, eighteen stoles and a few other items, totalling almost 150 pieces.

The exhibition is open free of charge from 1 May to 5 September 2022.
