Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 6

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 Matthew Kiehl of the Diocese of Richmond (USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral Church of the Sacred Heart, Richmond (Virginia) on 6th June along with two other candidates.

Father Kiehl commissioned vestments from the Studio in a stylised Gothic form. The vestments (shewn adjacent), were sewn from a silk damask in a muted shade of gold and were ornamented with an orphrey in red and gold : a unique design of the Saint Bede Studio.  The vestments were lined in red taffeta.

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