Today, the tabernacle from Holy Cross church was moved from the church to the chapel. The orginal tabernacle was built in to the old altar which was replaced decades ago, so the present tabernacle is not nearly as old as the church, although it has surely been with us for a very long time.
A new shelf was fabricated to hold the heavy, heavy tabernacle and it was safely installed with great care in its new temporary home. Obviously, the Blessed Sacrament was not in the tabernacle during the move! It will be good to be comforted by the Lord's presence in our old friend.
The Sedes Sapientia, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom was given a place of honor in our sanctuary.
Today we will also move the baptismal font to the chapel and eventually several of the church pews. We need to determine whether it is worthwhile to outfit the chapel with pews from the church, depending on which pews fit.
After the really, really heavy lifting was done, Father was given the honor of driving the tabernacle to its home in the chapel.
