The Altar

Our 8 sided mahogany altar with marble top.The eight panels, like the eight sides of our baptismal font, suggest the eighth day, the day of resurrection.

The 8 panels tell the story of “a grain of wheat”from the Gospel of St. John.

Our altar has a top that is constructed of Roman Travertine Marble. The side panels are hand carved from kiln dried Honduran mahogany.
