Stained Glass: Basilica Remembrance

Brother Mark Floreanini, O.S.B., stained glass artist, has been making a limited quantity of stained glass crosses from the old clerestory windows of the Archabbey Basilica. The windows were installed over 100 years ago. A new stained glass square, approximately eight inches in dimension, continues to provide the faithful with a token from the Basilica windows. Colorfully crafted squares incorporate elements from the old windows, while continuing the tradition of incorporating a cross in the design.

No two of these limited edition handcrafted colorful pieces are alike. They are suitable for hanging, as some come mounted with a chain. Others are suitable for display on a mantle or windowsill or shelf. The stained glass squares are available at the College book store, the Basilica Gift Shop as well from Archabbey Publications online at
