Prie-Dieu (Prayer Desk or Kneeler)
All Saint's Chapel
Camp Allen Retreat Center
This prie-dieu, prayer desk or kneeler was made for the chapel at Camp Allen. Its intended use is mainly for weddings. Walnut crotch wood veneer was used to accent this prayer desk. Crotch wood comes from the part of the tree where two branches come together which is a fitting symbol for a wedding as a new branch in the family tree. The structure of the prayer desk is native Texas pecan to match the other liturgical furnishings in the chapel. It includes an upholstered cushion for kneeling
Dimensions: 54" wide x 24" deep x 33" high.
