Father Raines commissioned vestments made in the Borromeon form for his First Holy Mass. The chasuble (shewn adjacent) was made from a rich ecclesiastical brocade in ivory and gold and was ornamented with a brocade in the colours of burgundy, red and gold, outlined with narrow braids, in the Roman style. The vestments were lined in red taffeta.
Please pray for Father Raines and for all newly-ordained priests.
