Priestly Ordinations 2014 : 8

conical chasuble
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.

This post concerns Father Daniel Gill, of the Diocese of Kansas City - Saint Joseph (Missouri, USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by the Most Rev'd Robert Finn in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Kansas City on 24th May.

Father Gill commissioned a chasuble for his First Holy Mass in the semi-conical form. The chasuble (shewn adjacent) was made from a beautiful silk damask in ivory and was ornamented with a chevron made from straw-coloured damask, outlined with a narrow braid, in colours of royal blue, red and gold. The vestments were lined in straw-coloured taffeta.

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