800 years of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual in Vienna

The special post office in Vienna received high-ranking guests: on 13th January 2024, the Chairman of the St. Gabriel Philatelists' Association, Wilhelm Remes, welcomed his honorary member, the Archbishop of Vienna Cardinal Dr. Christoph Schönborn OP, on the occasion of the festivities celebrating "800 Years of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual in Austria" at the Alser Church in Vienna. The large crowd included philatelists and festival guests, which was an excellent turnout for the special post office of Austrian Post and for the commemorative programme of the St. Gabriel Guild!
