Priestly Ordinations 2015 : 9

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 Andrew Garnett of the Diocese of Rockville Centre (New York, USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in the Cathedral of Saint Agnes (Long Island NY) on 20th June along with four other candidates.

Father Garnett commissioned vestments in the Borromeon form. The chasuble (shewn adjacent), was sewn from a white-coloured silk damask in colours of silver and straw-gold and was ornamented in the Roman manner with a brocade in the colours of old rose and old gold, outlined with a narrow galloon. The vestments were lined in a straw-coloured taffeta.

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