Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for Ordinands. Happily, this year has been no exception : indeed the number of requests for such vestments has been more than double previous years.

In this post we take special pleasure to describe vestments made for an Australian, Father Christian Irdi of the Archdiocese of Perth, who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Mary's Cathedral on 2nd August.

Father Irdi commissioned vestments made in the Borromeon form for his Ordination and First Holy Mass. The chasuble (shewn in adjacent photographs) was made from a beautiful silk damask in muted gold and was ornamented with a damask in the colours of burgundy and gold, outlined with narrow braids, in the Roman style. The vestments were lined in burgundy taffeta.  This design we have named Saint Bartholomew.

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