Liturgical vessels have a fundamental role in the church. They are used to store the Eucharist, to enhance its beauty, and for the solemn celebration of the Mass. Thanks to their presence, we can lean on the main religious symbol of Christianity, which is the Eucharist. The variety of forms and materials of liturgical vessels allows both wealthy and modest parishes to celebrate important moments and rites. With proper maintenance, liturgical vessels can be used for many years, making them even more valuable church accessories.

The role of liturgical vessels in the Church
cannot be overestimated. Holy water jugs and cauldrons are particularly important elements of the liturgy. First of all, they are used to store holy water, which is used during religious rituals, such as washing feet or pouring water on a child's head during a Baptism ceremony. Holy water has symbolic value and is a symbol of purification and renewal; its use allows Christ's disciples to meet their Lord.
Liturgical vessels are an important element in many religious rituals, such as the liturgy of Mass, adoration, Baptism and Holy Communion. In the Catholic Church, liturgical vessels are used to hold and eat the Eucharist, as well as during other priestly rites to honor the Divine Name.
