Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for priestly Ordinands. Happily, this year has been no exception.

In this post we are pleased to draw attention to the ordination of another Australian Father Joshua Miechels of the Archdiocese of Sydney.

Father Miechels was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Mary's Cathedral, Sydney on 31st October along with three other candidates.

Father Miechels commissioned vestments from the Studio in in the Borromeon 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 Miechels and for all newly-ordained priests.
