A two-day celebration at the
Church of the Blessed Sacrament
in Newark this week marked the
silver jubilee of the ordination of
Father Richard C. Crossei.
The 54-year-old priest, who has
been pastor of the Newark parish
since Sept. 1, 1946, was celebrant
at a Solemn High Mass last Sun
day, in commemoration of his ordi
nation. Bishop Ready presided.
Father William Armitage of
Holy Angels Church, Sandusky,
who was deacon at Father Crosser’s
first Mass 25 years ago, was the

the altar is anointed with the oil
of catechumens and the oil of
chrism, the latter of which is espe
cially significant of Christ, incense
is used as a sign of the sacrifice
of Christ and the prayers of the
Church, first to envelope the al
tar with its smoke, then as an of
fering which is made on the altar
Finally, the front of the altar
is anointed and this is followed by
the blessing of those things which
are used in the offering of the Ho
ly Sacrifice. And then the Mass
follows, towards which this long
and beautiful ceremony of conse
cration has looked.
“For the altar," says the Roman
Pontifical in the ordination of sub
deacons, “is Christ Himself, as
John witnesses, who in his Apoca
lypse relates that he saw a golden
altar standing before the throne, in
whom and through whom the of
ferings of the faithful are conse
crated to God the Father. The
cloths of this altar and the cor
porals are the members of Christ,
that is, God’s faithful, by whom
the Lord is surrounded as it were
with precious vestments as the
Psalmist says: ‘The Lord hath rul
ed, he is clothed with beauty.’
The altar, no mattei how poor or
rich it may be, is essentially a sign
of Christ and His union in offer
ing with His faithful whom He has
made “a kingdom and priests unto
God.” Through the ministry of His
ordained priests the faithful exer
cise their priesthood in Christ. For
the sake of what the altar means
we are baptized we arc strength
ened in confirmation to accept
what the altar means the altar is
a perpetual witness to what our
Christian life should be the altar
is the place where the holiest en
gagements of our life take place
the altar is the sign of the endur
ing presence of Christ to and in
His Church.
The modifications and improve
ments to the Cathedral were plan
ned and work begun in the latter
part of 1949 under the direction of
Bishop Ready. This project entail

along with extensive building op

speaker at the Mass. Father Wil

Father Edward McGinty, pastor

Four Cathedral Altars To Be Consecrated
The development program also
saw the construction of a new
Chancery building and Cathedral
In th* entire conception of beau
tifying the Cathedral, the principal
operation embraced the rearrange
ment of the sanctuary, its embel
lishment and conversion to liturgi
cal requirements.
The old sanctuary area is now
divided into two parts: a sanctu
ary proper and a chancel, located
at two levels above the main floor.
Separate chapels were built (The
Lady Chapel, the Terce Chapel and
the Blessed Sacrament Chapel) to
house the altars which originally
were located on either side of the
main altar.
The center of interest in the
sanctuary and the focal point of
the whole Cathedral is the new
main altar, which was a gift of the
Priests of the Diocese. The mensa
or “table” of the altar is of Bot
ticino marble supported on four
African onyx columns with a front
al of Rosso Angelo Italian marble.
The high altar is placed under a
canopy or “baldachin” supported
by four columns the whole of
which has been over laid with gold.
The richly ornamented, gold
plated tabernacle which rests on
the altar table and houses the
Blessed Sacrament was a gift of
Mary and Elizabeth McCamey of
New York City, the devoted sisters
of Father James F. McCamey, who
came to the Cathedral in 1921 and
was administrator of the Cathedral
from 1925 until his death in 1939.
The tabernacle of the altar in the
Blessed Sacrament chapel was al
so a gift of Father McCamey’s sis
tors, both gifts being in memory
of Father McCamey.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel
dedicated to the Sacred Heart is a
new addition to the Cathedral
building. Portions of the original
high altar, including the Last Sup
per panel, together with some new
marble, were assembled into a new
altar for the chapel.
A large, oaken panel raised to
the back and above the altar holds
a statue of the Sacred Heart. The
statue stands against a panel of
burled wood surrounded by a
bronze aureole and painted figures,
which include Pope Pius XII, the
of St. Aloysius parish, Columbus, art walking 'round with their heads in the clouds

He attended St. Joseph’s College,

and Pope Pius IX. During certain
Pontifical ceremonies the Blessed
Sacrament is reserved in this chap
The Lady Chapel is also part
of the new construction to the
Church, occupying roughly the
place where the old St. Joseph'al
tar stood.
The ceiling of the chapel is cof
fered and decorated in blue
squares, Our Lady’s color, with
white roses. The fifteen squares
represent the fifteen mysteries of
the Rosary.
The wall behind the altar is dec
orated in blue with six other sym
bols taken from the Litany of the
Blessed Mother. They are symbolic
representations of the Queen of
Peace, Queen of the Most Holy Ro
sary, Tower of David, Tower of
Ivory, Seat of Wisdom and Gate
of Heaven.
The side panels of the reredos,
the panel to the back and above
the altar table contain tour statues
representing Jesse, David. Joachim
and St. Ann, the forebears of the
Blessed Mother. These flank the
main statue of Our Blessed Mother
with the Christ Child. The Lady
Chapel was a gift of the Women of
the Diocese.
The Terce Chapel in which is
the altar dedicated to St. Joseph
was also part of the new construc
tion. In the Pontifical ceremonies,
it is appointed as the Bishops’ vest
ing chapel.
The original St. Joseph’s altar
was remodeled and added to to
form the present altar A stained
glass window immediately above
the altar was retained and a
reredos built around it. This rere
dos is of richly carved walnut with
gold decorations.
An arched doorway leads from
this chapel into the newly-con
structcd priests’ sacristy.
