Henninger's has been designing and building altars for decades. Our crew of skilled craftsmen have the capabilities to fabricate many types of altars in multiple mediums. This section is meant to show the vast range of possibilities in a new altar. Altars of Sacrifice, Reposition, Side Altars, and Communion Rails should all follow a common theme and work in concert to create a sacred space for the Eucharist.

Our Lady of Grace Church - Lancaster, SC

marble altar by henningers

This altar is made of with Nembro Rosato and Bianco Carrara marbles. The carved medallion of the Lamb on a gold mosaic background was salvaged from our marble warehouse. This new altar was dedicated at the church's first mass on August 15, 2016.

St. Michael Church - Garden City, SC

St. Michael's Adoration Altar is a fully restored Side Altar originally from St. Procop Church in Cleveland. It featured mosaic medallions, carved marble, and a clean, traditional look.


Altar of Sacrifice

This beautiful Altar of Sacrifice features a carved marble Victorious Lamb symbol in the center. The surrounding marble and mensa are all repurposed and restored. The inside view shows the special compartment for relics.


Mosaic and Marble Altar

Thirteen and a half feet tall, this Side Altar, and its matching Marian Altar flank either side of St. Michael's sanctuary. The restoration and installation of such a magnificent altar were imposing tasks.


St Hyacinth Altar

St. Michael's Altar of Repose was originally from St. Hyacinth Church in Cleveland. The Last Supper scene was repaired and repainted. Two angel pedestals were added to provide extra length to this large Bottacino marble back altar.


Guardian Angels Church - Crystal Falls, Michigan

Inspired by a couple of pieces of marble with in-laid mosaic, Henninger's collaborated with Rev. Jeffrey Kurtz to design and fabricate this beautiful altar. A matching ambo and altar railings were then added to the plan. His new sanctuary features polished Bottacino marble with stunning mosaic accents. A simple liturgical design and a lot of hard work created this wonderful Altar of Sacrifice.


Franciscan Sisters T.O.R. - Toronto, Ohio

The Franciscan Sisters T.O.R. commissioned Henninger's to design and build new marble altars and an ambo for their new chapel. The marble was used from SS. Cyril & Methodius, a church that had recently closed in Barberton, Ohio. Henninger's has had the responsibility to find new homes for items like these from numerous closed churches, and this is an excellent example.


Archdiocese of Military Services Chapel - Washington, D. C.

Archdiocese Military Services Renovation

Before Archbishop Timothy Broglio started this renovation, the furniture was made of wood and the tabernacle was placed on the side of the chapel. The centerpiece of his renovation was the altar of sacrifice. It was from Holy Trinity Church in Lorain, Ohio and Henninger's moved and installed in the Archdiocese of Military Services Chapel in Washington, D. C. We also transported marble statues of the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph and constructed a new marble Altar of Repose for their refinished tabernacle.


St. Julie Billiart Church - North Ridgeville, Ohio

St. Julie Billiart Altar

St. Julie Billiart Church asked Henninger's to design and build this altar of sacrifice. It matches the baptismal font we made at the same time. Our woodworkers used the dimensional drawing to cut, stain, paint, and assemble the pieces for this beautiful altar.


St. Joseph Church - Strongsville, Ohio

St. Joseph Strongsville Altar

Henninger's provided all of the sanctuary furniture for the renovation of St. Joseph Church in Strongsville, Ohio. This altar fit into the modern design of the church. Using architectural drawings, our crew built this altar out of marble, wood and brass.


St. Ladislaus Church - Lorain, Ohio

St. Ladislaus Altar

St. Ladislaus Church wanted to replace their movable altar with a more ornate permenent one. This altar of sacrifice was made using the door on the altar rail and other existing pillars from the church. The resulting altar fit properly into the sanctuary.
