New Reredos for Altar at West County Oratory
NLM has a nice story on the new altarpiece at the Oratory of SS Gregory and Augustine in West County. This really adds to the beauty and dignity of the setting for Mass. Adding components like this can work for nearly any sanctuary in the Archdiocese, and can often be done at quite reasonable expense. Given a modern-construction, fairly small space to use for the chapel, the Oratory has taken great care to make the setting as beautiful as possible. It is an effort to be emulated.
