The Cathedral - The Ambo

The Cathedral - The AmboThe Ambo is made of the same material as the reredos and the Altar. Its size does not symbolize its importance, rather the activity that takes places there lends the ambo its primary focus. It is large enough to hold the book of the readings and the book of the Gospels, yet not so large as to block from view the lectors who proclaim the Word, the cantor leading the psalm, or the minister proclaiming the Gospel.
