At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Saint Didier has his own church in Avignon.

TheSaint Didier church in Avignonwas founded by Saint Agricol, a 7th-century bishop in Avignon, and was dedicated to the martyr Saint Didier. This church is mentioned in documents only at the end of the 11th century. In the 14th century it received a posthumous donation from Cardinal des Déaux, who wished that a church be founded from his legacy.

The church was consecrated in 1359, and in keeping with the cardinal's wishes, the church was dedicated to the Transfiguration while preserving the name of Saint Didier. The Saint Didier church suffered damaged during the French Revolution and was later transformed into a prison, then hay storage place before once again becoming a place of worship in 1901.
