The Proskomediynyk, or Table of Preparation Sitting on a red cloth are the Chalice, Paten and Star. They are used to transfer the bread and wine from the Proskomediynyk to the Prystil, or Altar - and used to distribute Holy Communion. In the foreground are three Chalice covers, embroidered to match the priest’s vestments – one cover for the Paten, one for the Chalice, and the Great Cover to cover both. To the right of the Chalice covers is the Spear, used during the prayers to prepare the bread for Holy Communion. Above the Spear are two cruets containing water and fortified red wine, used for Holy Communion. Two candles illuminate the table. The tablecloths on the Table of Needs, Altar and Table of Preparation were all embroidered by parishioner Tekla Mulak in 1985.
