Browsing Why do we do this in Mass

Items we use in church during Mass.

Jul 7, 2017

This month we are going to review some of the items used in church during the Mass. Holy Water Font - This font contains Holy Water. We bless ourselves, “In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” When we enter and leave church, the Holy Water reminds us of our baptism. The Altar - The altar is the main focus of the Mass. It is where consecration takes place. The bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus. The Ambo - The ambo is where the readings and the Gospel are read. The Corporal - The corporal is a white linen cloth that is laid on the altar before the wine and bread are placed on the altar. More next week! Have a Blessed Week!
