Travel Altar Cards For The Tridentine Mass

Hello everyone. Continuing on with the recent project of freely offering all of the cards necessary to celebrate the Latin Mass to any priest who couldn't afford to buy them from us, we noticed that there was one puzzle piece missing. We didn't have a set small enough to be printed on a personal computer printer. Everything else could but not the altar cards. So, I whipped up a plain set today based on the free Microsoft Word downloads available from Una Voce. For the graphic, we found a picture of the oldest known Chi Rho symbol artifact which is now on view at the Cluny Museum in Paris, France.

This set of letter sized Latin altar cards is being offered as a free download to any priest or seminarian to print on their personal computer if necessary. The type is very small on the center card but if you have good eyesight you should be alright. The center card is the size of a sheet of paper while the side cards only 1/2 sheet. After lamination, these would be perfect for use while traveling because they can easily fit in a briefcase.

Like our other work stored online at Google Docs, one must have a Google Gmail account to access it. So, if you would like to download these travel size altar cards, just send me an email from a Gmail account and I will send you an "invitation" to view and download them.

For anyone who would like me to professionally print them and send them to you, the cost per set would be $15.00 plus $8.50 shipping and handling.

That's about it for now. I apologize for talking so much about our own work so much lately. We've just been very busy with bringing new materials out. Just a few more design projects and I should have some time to see what everyone else has been up to.

12/15/2010 Update: Please note that this post is two years old. Since then, we no longer offer altar cards for download. However, we have designed some very good Travel Altar Cards for Low and Requiem Latin Masses. If you are interested, please visit us online here.
