The Monterey Latin Mass Community approached King Richard’s to replicate its lost high altar. Relying on historic photos of the original altar, King Richard’s was prepared to carve, build and install a new altar. Instead we discovered an antique altar in our warehouse was a near perfect match. Restoring this rescued altar from a Church in Boston worked perfectly and for less money. This type of project is so gratifying because the history of the antique piece lives on in its new home for future generations.
