Ordination Season

To regular visitors to this Blog, apologies for the paucity of postings lately.  This year, the Season of Easter coincides with Ordinations in Australia and the USA and the Studio has been kept very busy helping Ordinands with vestments.  That work continues.

In the meantime, a small diversion.  The adjacent photograph was snapped by Dr Chris Steward in the split second when your correspondent was about to remove the mitre from the bishop's head.  It looks as if a murder were about to take place...

The Mass was the Easter Vigil celebrated Pontifically in the Extraordinary Form by the Most Rev'd Basil Meeking (sometime-Bishop of Christchurch, New Zealand) in S' Aloysius' church, Caulfield North (Archdiocese of Melbourne).  The mitre was made by the Studio and the vestments, based on the well-known vestments of S' Thomas Becket, were also designed some years ago by us.
