Serving the Faithful Since 1960

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.
