Siena Heights University will dedicate its new, custom-built altar in St. Dominic Chapel during Mass at 2 p.m. April 29.
The Bishop of Lansing, the Most Rev. Earl Boyea, will preside at Mass and the blessing ceremony. Funded by a grant from the Koch Foundation, as well as from benefactors and Siena Heights University, the new altar was hand-crafted by Amish carpenter Clayton Yoder and designed by Lenawee County architect Kara Lennard.
In addition to the altar, the set also includes an ambo, presider's chair, deacon's chair, large table, small table, blessing font base and lectern. The bowl for the baptismal font was hand-made by an artist at the Toledo Museum of Art.
"We hope the community can join us on the feast of St. Catherine of Siena for Mass and the dedication ceremony," said SHU President Sister Peg Albert, OP, PhD.
A reception will follow Mass in the McLaughlin University Center on the SHU campus.
The public is invited to both Mass and the reception.
