Priestly Ordinations 2012:1

We are pleased to begin again our annual series of vestments prepared by the Studio for Ordinands.

The first in this series of Ordination vestments features a chasuble prepared for the Rev'd Bartholomew Porzezinski who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral of S' Florian, Archdiocese of Warsaw on 2nd June.

The ordinand asked for a chasuble in the Saint Martin design. This design is extremely ample and is intended to be more contemporary in appearance, even though based in Catholic traditions. An ivory ecclesiastical brocade was chosen for the chasuble, ornamented with a brocade 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 gold taffeta.

Father Porzezinski very kindly sent some photographs of his First Mass in the church of the Blessed Virgin, Queen of Poland, Wolomin. We are pleased to include some here.

Please pray for Father Porzezinski and all newly-ordained priests.
