Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 4

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 John-Paul Mount of the Archdiocese of Melbourne (Australia), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral Church of Saint Patrick, Melbourne on 27th June along with two other candidates.

Father Mount commissioned vestments from the Studio in the Saint Giles style, but wished particular Marian overtones. The chasuble (shewn adjacent) unique in its design, was sewn from an Italian lampas in silver, straw and taupe and was ornamented with an orphrey in blue with medallions in applique-work. A galloon based on the work of AWN Pugin outlined this orphrey. The vestments were lined in a blue silk taffeta of a shade common in the mediaeval period.

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

This post will be updated with further photographs of Father Mount's Ordination.
