Priestly Ordinations 2013 : 8

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 Justin Raines, a student of the Pontifical North American College, who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Diocese of Nashville, Tennessee on 27th July.

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.
