ST. JOSEPH'S APPRENTICE - Portable Altars

email: stjosephsapprentice@gmail.com

HAND CRAFTED ALTARS

Every Altar that I make is individually hand crafted and customized to each priest which takes about 4 weeks to complete.  

So at any given time I am running about 4-5 months out with our current back log.

Thank you for understanding.

ALTAR KIT WW2 ERA

WW2 Chalice Kit

A kit from World War 2 that is more rare is the chalice kit. It has “wings” that open up. Here it is opened up and covered with a red velvet "vesperal cloth" that covers the altar mensa and linens when no in use.

 

 

WW2 ERA PORTABLE ALTAR

“Portable altar with three panels that fold into a compact, fabric-lined carrying case with a leather strap handle. Used by Father George R. Metcalf of St. Paul, Minnesota. Metcalf served as chaplain for General George S. Patton during World War II. The style of the military uniforms depicted in the painting suggest that the altar was originally used during World War I” (In the collection of the Minnesota Historical Society).
