THE 1999 ST. LOUIS PAPAL ALTAR
The original blue print of the St. Louis Papal Altar, created by Catholic Supply's liturgical designer, Mr. Angelo Gherardi. The design features a main stage (60 feet across and 40 feet deep) and two side stages (one foot lower) for the 200 bishops (35' x 40'). A 45 foot replica of the St. Louis Arch was designed for the center with a suspended 48 foot wooden cross hanging from the rafters above. Mr. Gherardi also designed the entire Altar Setting- including the Pope's chair, Altar, and Pulpit.
The Altar was assembled in less than 30 hours prior to the start of the mass.
THE MOMENT OF A LIFETIME!
Our owners were granted the opportunity to meet Blessed John Paul II after the prayer service at the Basilica. This rare opportunity was a privilege that they will remember forever.
