Stations of the Cross





    The Stations of the Cross can be found across the street from the St. Bonaventure campus just past the highway bridge. They consist of a series of fourteen structures made of glass mosaic and terra cotta bricks. Each station depicts a different stage of Jesus' journey to his execution.  The stations were erected in 1926 and designed by Chester Oakley, also the architect of many of the older buildings on campus.  The glass mosaic used for the shrine was imported from Europe and the terra cotta bricks are most likely the same as those used on Devereux Hall.  The fourteen stations are surrounded by a column on each side, and each station shows its own detailed image.
