If you ever wondered where those communion rails went....

...they mostly ended up in the trash, I am sorry to say.  A few were preserved, and some were repurposed.  Here's one from my old church.

This is the burial site of an old parish priest.  Out of respect for him, instead of throwing away the old altar rail and gate, the parishioners placed it around his grave.

I suppose it's better than marble rails used for curb stones or the altar of St. Peter's Seminary in the Diocese of London lying at the bottom of the Thames River.
