The Tabernacle
Question from Mike Lipari on 11/4/2008:

In some American churches, the tabernacle is put off to the side. Is this practice ok? is it approved by the Vatican?

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 11/5/2008:

I believe that for a time it was popular and approved in this Country to do so but now the norms insist upon the Tabernacle being prominent and visible in the main part of the Church--thank God!

Thanks, Mike

Father Echert
