Most of the icons on view in the Icon Chapel (adjoining the Gift Shop) were obtained by the various Assumptionist priests who served as chaplains to the foreign diplomatic corps in Moscow from 1934 to 1998. Nearly all were icons that were in Russian homes and used in family devotions until the aggressively atheistic Soviet regime made possessing them dangerous and prejudicial to one's social advancement.
Also on display are liturgical objects that belonged to Bishop Pie Neveu, a French Assumptionist and missionary who served as pastor of St. Louis-of-the-French Church in Moscow. This church served Catholic foreigners visiting or residing in the Russian capitol.
