In any case, my companion amended me that the platform was really known as a podium and the lectionary as the Catholics allude to it contains parts of the Bible that the dad uses to direct mass. There were distinctive statues in various positions inside the congregation. These statues spoke to various holy people. Besides, the holy people, accepted to be in paradise neglect upon the dedicated and guide them in their day by day lives.

There was likewise a statue of Mary holding her child, Jesus Christ (Ascension Catholic Community1). Before the statue, there were lit candles that are an image of supplication. I likewise seen 14 pictures all round the dividers of the congregation. These Stations of the Cross recount the tale of the misery and inevitable passing of Jesus on account of Romans. These stations control Catholic unwavering in supplication amid the loaned period that goes before the Easter celebration. At the front of the congregation, dangling from above there was a cross with a figure on it. This cross I was educated spoken to Jesus crucification on the cross.
