EWTN Catholic Q&A
Location of Tabernacle in Church
Question from John Nygard on 11-18-2017:

Where should the tabernacle be situated in the Church? Some people say that since Vatican II it should be off to the side in a special location.

Answer by Judie Brown on 11-25-2017:

John

IN my opinion, the best place for the tabernacle is directly above the altar in the center of the Church. When some suggests otherwise, I like to ask: "Why would you put Christ off to the side as though he were someone who did not deserve our total attention?"
