Altar #4

Altar dressed for Mass; Madonna & Child to left (in its carrying case); framed poster of the crucifixion to right; seven chairs set for the congregation.
Reverse: "Fr Mac2's Altar No. 4. This is post Vat II.
This was in two main pieces - a heavy wooden folding table & a large wooden case made of marine plywood with aluminium protective moulding on all corner edges. The case has a detachable lid which when removed allowed the altar top to be unfolded outwards - under this folding top were stowed all the altar requisites.
This was the altar I left at Mr St John Foti's museum at Downham Market.
Note. This photo shows my hand-carved statue of O.Lady in a protective oak case - I used to stand it near my altar. On the left is one of my seasonal posters by an artist friend. (Boxford Suffolk)

Fr Ketterer to Bishop Parker: Extension roof; Altar and Tabernacle; visit to new Cathedral

Roof soon to be finished. Considering a new Tabernacle for £25 and a new simple oak table with four supports for the altar - this will suffice until a more permanent can be obtained. In discussion with Mr Hastings about the provision of altar rails which had been ruled out to save cost. Hopes that the new (it will be so after so many changes) is nearing completion and will visit next week. Offers to say masses for the Cathedral Fund - only ten Mass intentions at present.

Fr Langley to Bishop Clark: Mass times at Blakeney

Puts forward a number of reasons for having a change in Mass scheduling to include anticipatory masses, to space them out to allow for the tide and parishioners crewing boats, to assist visitors to attend Mass. Confirms central heating is "to be done commercially!" Planning permission is needed for a boiler house. Wants a garage but cannot have the wood and asbestos construction as there are restrictions set by the planners. to protect the Conservation Area. Describes changes within the Church: tabernacle moved; wood oiled; wall painted; new Stations of the Cross installed (awaiting the fifteenth from Florence); re-siting of altar planned. Bishop of Lynn has given permission for the use of St Nicholas Church (but must wait for the new vicar to arrive).
