Church Ambry Usage
Christian churches often employ an ambry as a secure container for chalices and other sacred vessels. The Roman Catholic Church, however, forbids storage of the Eucharist in an ambry, requiring reservation of the sacrament to be in a tabernacle, or a pyx when mobility is needed. Instead, the Catholic Church most often uses ambries for housing sacramental oil vessels like the Oil of the Catechumens, Oil of the Sick, and Sacred Chrism.
