Priestly Ordinations 2011 part 2

On 5th May, the Rev'd Damon Sypher FSSP was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, by His Eminence, Cardinal Pell. The Mass was celebrated according to the 1962 Liturgical books. The adjacent photograph shews Father Sypher during the Rite of Ordination.

Father Sypher was ordained in a Saint Philip Neri style chasuble made by the Saint Bede Studio and presented to him by friends.  The chasuble was made of silver and straw-coloured silk damask, ornamented with orphreys of burgundy and straw brocade according to the Roman style.  The photograph below shews the rear of the chasuble.

A similar chasuble is illustrated here.
