Ordinations 2010 part II

The second in this small series of Ordination chasubles was prepared for a young Sydney man, who was ordained to the priesthood in S' Mary's Cathedral Sydney on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, along with five other men.

The ordinand asked for a chasuble in the Saint Martin design, but strictly in colours of white and gold. This design is extremely ample and is intended to be more contemporary in appearance, even though based in Catholic traditions.

A renaissance-style ivory damask was chosen for the chasuble, ornamented with a brocade of white and gold, outlined with a narrow galloon. The ornamentation is in the traditional Roman style of the TAU. The chasuble was fully lined.
