The society is responsible for the decoration of the altar area, and sometimes the entire church, for normal and special events. In decorating the altar area, it takes into account Church guidance to determine what is appropriate or inappropriate, through Canon Law, Vatican or diocesan guidance. In addition, the society will take account of local norms and expectations to achieve an effect which enhances but does not replace the altar and the ceremony as the focus of the congregation.
