HomeOur ParishCathedral TourHoly Cross Chapel › Altar


The original marble altar with wooden screen and tabernacle rests against the back wall on a raised platform of the sanctuary. The tabernacle is surmounted by a bronze crucifix covered by an ornate canopy. 

The entire sanctuary is surrounded with beautiful raised oak paneling that is similar to the paneling found in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel in the Cathedral.  

Above the altar is a stained glass window showing the Agony in the Garden modeled after the painting Christ in Gethsemane by E. Goodman.

A smaller, simple altar stands just outside the sanctuary to conform with Second Vatican Council.
