Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 5

Pugin vestments
One of the two dalmatics.
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 Richard Miserendino of the Diocese of Arlington (USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral Church of Saint Thomas More, Arlington (Virginia) on 6th June along with six other candidates.

Father Miserendino commissioned vestments from the Studio in the Saint Austin style, with matching dalmatics. The vestments (shewn adjacent), were sewn from an ivory-coloured ecclesiastical brocade and were ornamented with an orphrey in red, gold, blue and white : a unique design of the Saint Bede Studio, based on early mediaeval ornament. The vestments were lined in straw-gold taffeta.

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