St. Vibiana was a third-century virgin martyr. She is the patroness of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. 

Vibiana’s remains were discovered on December 9, 1853, in ancient catacombs near the Appian Way. A marble tablet on her tomb was inscribed “to the soul of the innocent and pure Vibiana,” with a laurel wreath, which symbolized martyrdom among ancient Christians. 

Since 2002, the relics of St. Vibiana have been housed at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in the mausoleum.
