The Season "Per Annum" : 3

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 red silk and ornamented with an orphrey braid in Red, burgundy and gold.  This braid, based on a design by AWN Pugin, has been especially produced for the Saint Bede Studio to commemorate the Pugin Bicentenary year.

The adjacent photograph shews a chasuble from this set.  A previous post described another part of the set.
