The Eucharistic Chapel in the Coury House retreat center is a compact, graceful space with a curved wall, two neo-Gothic antique windows and and emphasis on monastic simplicity. There was also a need for one furnishing which could serve both as place of reservation and exposition of the Sacrament. By incorporating an ostensorium into the door, both goals were accomplished. When the Sacrament is not exposed, folding outer doors wrap around and give the tabernacle a unified appearance. A small door behind the ostensorium gives access for the luna from behind the exposition door, which also locks the reservation receptacle. Simple and contemplative, the entire piece clearly serves the Eucharist for which it was created.
