New Pews and an Altar Rail for a Catholic Chapel
St. Joseph Oratory Furnishings – La Salette Boys Academy – Georgetown, Illinois
A tiny oratory is in need of increased seating capacity an altar rail and a kneeler for the front pew.
Very limited space for furnishings.
- The client requested an altar rail that could double as the kneeler for the front pew. This conserved a lot of space but by itself was not enough.
- The pews feature a new type of folding kneeler action that permit 36″ row spacing without cramping the worshipers. The age-old problem of kneelers being kicked over by tall worshipers as they return to their pews for after Communion prayers is eliminated.
The seating requirements of the client were met. Despite using minimal 36″ row spacing, even tall people are able to sit and kneel without feeling cramped.
