St. Philip Neri Marble

Henninger's recently completed an installation at St. Philip Neri Church in Fort Mill, SC.  The parish is finishing up their new church and the altars, ambo, and holy water font were a few of the last pieces pieces finished in the church.  The relationship between pastor Fr. John Giuliani and Henninger's began with a referral from Fr. Raymond Carlo, pastor of St. Michael Church in Garden City, SC.  Fr. Giuliani contacted Henninger's to supply his new church with sanctuary furniture.  He explained that the parish had outgrown its worship space and the new church would be finished in 2013.

The following drawings were submitted and approved by Fr. Giuliani:
The ambo and altars of sacrifice and repose would be made out of new slabs of Rojo Alicante and Bottacino Classico.  A carved lamb symbol from Henninger's warehouse was selected as the centerpiece of the altar of repose. 

Finally, Father picked a baptismal font from Henninger's warehouse and asked for the bowl to be hollowed out and the top to be removed.

Cutting, polishing, and assembly by Henninger's marble craftsmen continued for months until the pieces were finished and ready for delivery and installation.  The following pictures detail the installation process and finished pieces.

 The new sanctuary will be dedicated on May 3rd, 2012.
