Jubilee Vestments

The Saint Bede Studio was commissioned to prepare a set of red vestments to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Ordination of a Sydney priest, Father Patrick Sharpe MSC.

A Renaissance-style Italian silk damask of cherry red and old gold was chosen for the design, which was ornamented with a pallium-style orphrey in red-silk. Appliques were added to the orphrey to provide highlights. The lining used for Father Sharpe's vestments was red silk taffeta.
