Lavabos / Ewers / Flagons
Lavabo Sets, Ewers and Flagons are all types of pitchers, bowls and other vessels that are used to hold liquids during the celebration of the Eucharist. A lavabo set consists of a bowl and an ewer. The ewer contains water that is poured into the bowl for the ceremonial washing of the hands before Mass. Once the service is underway, the flagon is used to hold the wine that is to be consecrated for Mass. The pitcher-like vessel is typically used in churches that use more than 1 chalice during services. The flagons used to pour the consecrated wine into the chalice or other type of cup. It is left on the altar at the Offertory during services and chalices or cups are brought to the altar after the Breaking of Bread to be filled.
