Priestly Ordinations 2014 : 12

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 Jeremy Palman, of the Diocese of Auckland (New Zealand), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by the Most Rev'd Patrick Dunn in the Cathedral of Saint Patrick, Auckland on 9th August.

Father Palman commissioned vestments made in the Saint Philip Neri form for his Ordination and First Holy Mass. The chasuble (shewn in adjacent photographs) was made from an ecclesiastical brocade in ivory 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 straw-coloured cotton.

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