The ordinand asked for a set of vestments in the Borromeon style. A beautiful silk damask in shades of ivory and straw was chosen for the vestments (a chasuble and dalmatic).
The chasuble and dalmatic were ornamented with an outline galloon in gold, the chasuble having its orphreys enhanced with a brocade in burgundy and old gold and with applique. The vestments were fully lined in burgundy dupion silk.
The adjacent photographs shew the dalmatic and chasuble.

Father Nelson very kindly supplied us with the photograph below, which is of great interest. Father Nelson is shewn with his own father, who was ordained a permanent deacon in November. Two ordinations for the one family in one year: a great blessing.
Congratulations to Father and Mr Nelson and to all newly-ordaineds.
