Priestly Ordinations 2013 : 7

Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for Ordinands.  Happily, this year has been no exception. This post concerns Father Jacob Straub, who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral of the Assumption, Diocese of Covington, Kentucky on 22nd June.

Father Straub commissioned vestments made in the Saint Philip Neri form for his First Holy Mass. The chasuble (shewn adjacent) was made from an ecclesiastical brocade in ivory and gold and was ornamented with a silk damask outlined with narrow braids in the colours of burgundy and gold, in the Roman style. The vestments were lined in gold taffeta.

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