The Creed Written Into This Altar

The designers of this new high altar and the murals above it intentionally "wrote" the entire Apostles' Creed into it. Like medieval cathedrals, which were "sermons in stone" and the Bible of the illiterate, we tried to physicalize the great creeds in it. And how perfect then that Christmas, the day when we even genuflect during the Creed, was the first holy day the parish held in this new space. Included here is one more picture of the sanctuary, because you're going to need it to follow all the steps in the homily.
