Ordinations 2010 - part IV

The fourth in this small series of Ordination chasubles was prepared for Father Daniel O'Mullane from the United States who studied for the Sacred Priesthood at the Pontifical North American College, Rome.

The ordinand asked for a chasuble which corresponded to the specifications laid down in the 16th century by S' Charles Borromeo.

A magnificent silk damask in grey and straw was chosen for the chasuble, ornamented with a silk damask of rose-red and gold, outlined with a narrow galloon. The ornamentation is in the traditional Roman style of the TAU. The chasuble was fully lined.

The photograph below was taken by Jeff Pikor at the First Mass of Father O'Mullane.
