The First Mass of a Newly-Ordained

Doing the rounds on various Blogs today are some photographs taken at the First Mass of Father Patric D'Arcy, newly ordained for the Archdiocese of New York.  Father D'Arcy chose to celebrate this Mass in the Extraordinary Form.  Please pray for Father D'Arcy and for all those preparing for Ordination this year.

A Solemn Mass set of vestments made by the Saint Bede Studio for another New York priest-customer was used for this Mass.  The chasuble and cope are in the Borromeon form.  A further description of the vestments can be read here.

Some lovely photographs, reproduced from the Blog of the Society of Saint Hugh of Cluny.  Click on the images for an enlarged view.
