Foyer Mosaics in St. Mary's Chapel

Click Here to View the Foyer Mosaics in St. Mary's Hall

Entering through the main door of the building and passing the porter's room and the parlors we come upon a large foyer containing a crucifix of Christ the King and four great, colorful mosaics. These may be said to depict in briefest form the great eras in the history of the Order of Saint Augustine. First, our holy Father St. Augustine, next the Augustinian scholars in medieval Universities, the missioners of the Order in the New World, and the foundation of the Order in the United States, follow in sequence.

All altars, statues and mosaics are the work of the Angelo Lualdi Studios of Florence, Italy.
