This purple Altar Frontal features the words “Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus” (Holy, Holy, Holy) embroidered and outlined in gold. The Greek Cross with sunburst rays provide richness to this striking and modern look given to the traditional symbols. Specify measurements up to but not exceeding 72” long x 40” deep, plus a 10” front drop, which allows for a custom fit.
Our Gommo Parament Series blends the traditional with the contemporary. Two fabrics are used to create the unique look of this set. Cathedral has a textured linen-like look with a modern flair and the Asbury is a rich woven damask fabric. The damask has a self-pattern of crosses. Made in the liturgical colors of green, purple, red, and white complementary to every seasonal occasion, the sets provide a coordinated succession of symbols and styles throughout the church calendar year. Custom made with outstanding hand and machine workmanship, quality materials, and craftsmanship, the Gommo Parament Sets are a superior addition to any church.

Did you know. . .
Paraments are the linens and cloth hangings used on communion tables, altars, pulpits and lecterns. The colors of the paraments reflect the traditional colors of the seasons of the Christian year and are changed as the seasons change. Often they are embellished with specific symbols appropriate to the Christian season.
In the Christian era, the art of embroidery as applied to church decoration is traced to Helen, the mother of the first Christian emperor.
In the seventh century, the art of embroidery was cultivated in the British Isles with much success. More than a thousand years ago, the clerics of St. Gallen, a little town in Eastern Switzerland, cultivated this art as they did other arts to the glory of God.
