communion table in the choir - SMC151
communion table is in the choir of St Magnus Cathedral and
is placed before the organ screen. It was designed by George
Mackie Watson and carved out of Scottish Oak during the refurbishment
of the Cathedral.
The table is carved with floral motifs and grape vines. The
bible verse "This do in remembrance of me", Luke
22:19, is carved into the front of the table.
Holy Communion, or the Eucharist, is a Christian service of
thanksgiving where the congregation receive bread and wine.
The bread represents the body of Christ and the wine his blood.
This echoes events at The Last Supper.
