Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

As described in previous posts, the Studio has been working on a commission for a Solemn Mass set in green.  The set was constructed for the Centenary of the Sacred Heart Church, Robbinsdale, a Parish in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.

The vestments are made from a Green English brocade, lined in gold silk and ornamented with an orphrey braid in Red and gold, enhanced with applique and outlined with a green galloon. 

The vestments, together with a complementing mitre (adjacent photograph) was presented to the Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis on the occasion of the Church's centenary, 26th September, 2011.  The photograph below shews the chasuble presented to the Archbishop.
