Did You Know? (Sunday, November 17, 2019)

There is a difference between a Tabernacle and an Aumbry. Though both are used for the exclusive reservation of the consecrated elements (the Body and Blood of Christ), the Tabernacle is either placed on an Altar or an adjacent wall to the Altar, while an Aumbry is less obvious, because it is set into the wall. However, both are able to be locked in order to prevent the consecrated elements from being removed without authorization.
