A lavabo consists normally of an ewer or container of some kind to pour water, and a bowl to catch the water as it falls off the hands. In ecclesiastical usage, it refers to all of the basin in which the priest washes his/her/their hands; the ritual that surrounds this action in the Catholic Mass.

The name lavabo (“I shall wash” in Latin) is derived from the words of Psalm 26:6-12 (KJV; in the Septuagint it is Psalm 25), which the celebrant traditionally recites while he/she/they washes his/her/their hands: “I will wash my hands in innocency, so will I compass thine altar, O Lord”. The washing of hands during the recitation of these psalm verses is of very ancient usage in the Catholic Church:

In most liturgical traditions, the priest washes his/her/their hands after vesting, before the beginning of the liturgy. This washing may be accompanied by prayers. Many Christian rites also have the priest wash his/her/their hands before beginning the Eucharistic prayer.
