Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 7

Saint Philip Neri
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 William Slattery of the Diocese of Fargo (USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral Church of Saint Mary, Fargo (North Dakota) on 27th June along with another candidate. Father Slattery had been a student of the Pontifical North American College.

Father Slattery commissioned vestments from the Studio in the Saint Philip Neri style. The vestments (shewn adjacent), were sewn from a shade of ivory silk damask and were ornamented with a simple orphrey in colours of ivory and gold, arranged in the Roman style.  The vestments were lined in a muted shade of yellow taffeta.

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