St. Paul Altar of Sacrifice

In less than three months, the new St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Westerville, Ohio will be dedicated.   The church's new altar of sacrifice is designed by David Meleca - shown below. 

The altar is made of Jerusalem limestone - built by hand in Jerusalem by Jerusalem Gardens Stone Works.  Dimensions are, 8’-10” wide  x 4’-4” deep x 3’-4” high.

The altar will arrive to the U.S. via ship, with each section packed in separate cargo containers.   It will then be assembled at the church in Westerville.
