“Calvary is His cathedral; the rock of Calvary is the altar stone; the sun turning to red is the sanctuary lamp; Mary and John are the living side altars; the Host is His Body; the wine is His Blood. He is upright as Priest, yet He is prostrate as Victim. His Mass is about to begin.” – Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

DESIGNED & PROPOSED BY STEPHEN S. CASCIO

What is the Altar of Calvary?
It is an extraordinary setting to witness the traditional Latin Mass literally offered at the foot of His cross

(Above is a photographic rendition by Stephen S. Cascio)
Graced by the crowning act of Christian worship, Cascio’s imagination intimately unifies God’s love for man in its purist form; an altar chiseled and embedded into the raw earthy stone representing Calvary; a place where our Blessed Savior offers Himself to His heavenly Father and our salvation; the same place where the beauty of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered, right at the foot of His cross. Mass at the Altar of Calvary becomes the most perfect prayer and all that it means. All that flows from it, and all that complements it.
