Ordination Mass of Father Damian McCaughan

Continuing our series of Ordination vestments, is a set prepared for a young man who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in St Malachy’s Church, Coleraine (Northern Ireland) on 3rd July by the Bishop of Down and Connor.

Father Damian McCaughan had undertaken priestly studies at the Pontifical Irish College, Rome.  Read a little more about Father McCaughan here.  Please pray for Father McCaughan and all newly-ordained priests.

The ordinand asked for a chasuble in the Borromeon style.  A Renaissance-style silk damask in silver and gold was chosen for the vestments, ornamented with a silk damask of burgundy and gold, outlined with a narrow galloon. The ornamentation is in the traditional Roman style of the TAU. The chasuble was fully lined in cherry-red cotton.
