Stacking Ciboria Sets

A ciborium is a cup-shaped container that is charged with holding the host during and following the celebration of the Eucharist. While ciboria come in a variety of sizes and styles, most are rather small. In order to expand the capacity of the ciboria without extending the size of the vessel, stacking ciboria sets are often used. Stacking sets allow one ciborium to act as the lid for another, increasing the overall capacity without straying beyond the typical shape or size of the religious vessel.

Though designed for efficiency, stackable ciboria sets still retain their decorative properties. Many of the styles offered at Matthew F. Sheehan feature traditional styling, like polished finishes, cross embellishments and more. Even the handles of the ciboria may be shaped in a manner that is decorative as well as functional. Select styles may include an additional feature such as a finial cross or other embellishment on the top ciborium's lid.

Unlike single ciboria, church stacking ciboria include special features that allow them to be stable when stacked. Something as simple as a small indent on the lid may provide the stability needed to create a stack. These features are not always obvious at first and are meant to blend in with the design as to not take away from the importance of the religious piece. Ciboria are made using high-quality materials that are food safe and suitable for use with all types of hosts. Capacities may vary from what is indicated based on the size and shape of the hosts used at your church. Ciboria sets are designed in a way that each container can be used individually or as part of the stacked set.
