The centerpiece of many religions is the altar. Some religions have an altar in a church, while some encourage families to set up small altars in their homes.

Christy Warren, my wife, asked her brother, Ramon to build a wall mount altar. Sunday, September 2, 2012,

The water grottoes below the family altar were built by a local Tacloban City craftsman, but they have not been included in the current family altar design and remain in storage under the altar.

Christy asked the kids to help her change out the dressings of her outside altar. Analyn3B FAMILY ALTAR_Nikon D 70 Photo by Samuel E. Warren JrDSC_1220-01_resized Natividad cleaned the ceramic angels, while Christy decided on the cloth to use for the altar skirts.
