Re: St. Malachy’s, Belfast
A new altar, baptismal font and chair were installed in the church as part of the careful restoration.
Unfortunately, these precise elements are the weakest in an otherwise excellent looking project. The new Volksaltar, chair and baptismal font are quite brutal when contrasted with the finesse of the ceiling and wall decorations.
It is not at all obvious that a chair for liturgical use should be “fixed” and in such a heavy manner. Also, the font is inappropriately placed too close to the altar and not close enough to the main entrance of the church.
