THE ORDER OF THE DEDICATION OF A CHURCH AND AN ALTAR
The Dedication of a Church and an Altar is among the most solemn liturgical actions.
The place where the Christian community is gathered to hear the Word of God, to offer prayers of intercession and praise to God, and above all to celebrate the sacred mysteries and where the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist is reserved is a special image of the Church, which is God’s temple built from living stones.
