OUR NEW BLESSED SACRAMENT ALTAR
Our new altar to the Blessed Sacrament, which houses the Tabernacle, and rightly located behind the main altar. This is the altar that was blessed by Bishop Tobin last week.
Here are some more pictures at the Holy Ghost parish site. BTW, these two pictures came from there as well.
The inscription up top: Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus. Click on either of these for a bigger, clearer picture.
Not too many 1987-built sanctuaries look this good. Of course, most of the improvements are very recent (like, since Fr. Finelli's arrival in 2002). Last fall, the hanging sanctuary lamp and large crucifix were added. The numberboards came in January 2005.
Bishop Tobin's homily and blessing of the new altar, as well as the Mozart Ave Verum as performed by the Holy Ghost Choir, can be heard on Fr. Finelli's iPadre Catholic Podcast, episode #16.
