St. Thomas of Villanova Tabernacle Design

Palatine, Illinois

The design for the new tabernacle at St. Thomas of Villanova in Palatine is set within the masonry wall and surrounded with contrasting stone to give it permanence and identify it more prominently within the Sanctuary. The Tabernacle rests on a stone Altar of Repose. A sanctuary lamp hangs above the Tabernacle as a symbol of Christ’s presence.
