What is it?
Can any reader identify for what this is used? Bonus points if you have a name for it.
A crozier stand?
John D beat me to it. Don’t know of an official name but how about Crook Nook?
Crosier stand. Did your vimps wear gloves, too?
I confess I had never seen a crozier stand before. When the Kansas City bishops came to my last parish, they had servers assigned to hold miter and crozier.
It appears to be a stand to hold the processional cross or crucifix.
Interesting — my bishop’s crosier stand (I don’t know that there is another name for it) is simpler, and breaks down into pieces that fit into a case a bit bigger than a large briefcase. This one looks like it folds down, but would still be a bit awkward to move. Does it have a carrying handle?
Ordinarily servers do hold the miter and crosier, but if a parish doesn’t come up with enough of them for a liturgy, or if they are all young/small (so holding the crosier through the Eucharistic Prayer/communion rite would be hard) the stand is very helpful.
