The second in a series of ornaments featuring the Saint Vincent Archabbey Basilica is now available in the Basilica Gift Shop, first floor of the Parish Center, adjacent to the Archabbey Basilica.
The ornament features the Basilica’s Nativity Window. It was designed by Father Vincent de Paul Crosby, O.S.B., of Archabbey Studios. Cost is $10.95. Last year’s ornament, in gold, features the exterior of the front of the Basilica. It is still available for $9.95.
The Basilica Gift Shop is open from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 6:30 p.m. Saturdays and from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
The Gift Shop is also still stocking the Saint Vincent Bread Mix in a Jar, making the once regionally-famous bread available off-campus for the first time since a January 28, 1963, fire destroyed the bakery and other buildings. The bakery was never rebuilt, thus preventing the large-scale production which had enabled Saint Vincent Bread to be sold regionally.
