Chalice Palls Hand Embroidered by Kathryn Laffrey

Kathryn Laffrey is currently studying for her Master of Sacred Arts at Pontifex University. You can commission works from her, and I recommend her embroidery, particularly at kl-artstudio.com. Kathryn came to Princeton for the last Scala Foundation Conference, in Princeton in 2022, and it was a pleasure to see her there.

The pelican is a symbol of the Eucharist because it was once believed that pelicans fed their young on their own flesh, pecked from their breasts. This is a symbol of the faithful, who are part of the mystical body of Christ, eating the body and blood of Christ.
