Ensure the chalice veil is placed neatly over the chalice assembly, with the embroidered cross
on the chalice veil facing the congregation. The color of the chalice veil will match the color of
the altar frontal.
Place the Bible stand (at an angle and facing towards the chaplain) on the altar to the left of
the chalice assembly as viewed from the congregation's perspective. The top of the Bible
stand should be raised at a 45-degree angle.
Place a Book of Worship for US Forces on the Bible stand so the chaplain can read the words
from behind the altar while facing the congregation.
Place the credence table beside the altar to the right side of the chaplain. Cover the credence
table with a white cloth.
Place the following items on the credence table:
Two cruets (one cruet filled with wine and one cruet filled with water)
Ciborium (with small communion hosts for the congregation)
PART C - SET UP A GARRISON CHAPEL FOR INTINCTION CUP COMMUNION SERVICES
The Intinction Cup Method of communion is most commonly used in a field of combat environment.
Figure 3-5 shows the altar layout for an intinction cup communion service. You should follow the steps
below when you prepare the altar for this method of communion service.
Place the candlesticks near the rear corners of the altar (the side farthest from the
congregation) and the cross/crucifix centered near the rear edge.
Insert the intinction cup inside the chalice and fill the intinction cup with small communion
hosts (Figure 3-6).
