Free Designs and Estimates

Altars of Sacrifice Drawings

Henninger's offers free designs and estimates. We can design a new altar using existing materials from your church or our warehouse. We can also rework any existing pieces into a new creation. Sometimes the restoration and reworking of altars can lead to the most impressive designs. Let our creativity bring harmony to your worship space. "Since the church teaches us that 'the altar is Christ,' its composition should reflect the nobility, beauty, strength, and simplicity of the One it represents... it is to be 'freestanding to allow the [priest] to walk around it easily and Mass to be celebrated facing the people.'" -Built of Living Stone
