Linen Purificators are generally folded in thirds and placed over the chalice and under the paten. These small linens are the most frequently used of all the church linens in liturgical use.
Purificators are used to clean out the chalice and paten after communion.
Lavabo Towels are embroidered with a cross on the front of the towel. The lavabo towel is held by the acolyte during the service. The term “lavabo towel” comes from the Latin root, “lava,” meaning to wash.
