Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 2

Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for priestly Ordinands. Happily, this year has been no exception.

This post concerns Father Ian Van Heusen of the Diocese of Raleigh (North Carolina, USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Patrick's Church Fayetteville on 6th June along with other candidates.

Father Van Heusen commissioned vestments from the Studio in the Saint Philip Neri form. The chasuble (shewn adjacent), was sewn from a green and gold coloured ecclesiastical brocade and was ornamented very simply in the Roman manner with outlining braids. The vestments were lined in green silk.

Please pray for Father Van Heusen and for all newly-ordained priests.
