During Advent

In 2012, the Saint Bede Studio received a special commission from the Church of Saint Birinus in Oxfordshire (UK) to make a set of vestments for Advent. Saint Birinus has adopted various usages from the Sarum Rite for their celebrations of the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. During the Season of Advent they use an English blue.

To accompany the existing chasuble, a dalmatic has now been made from a lovely English ecclesiastical brocade, in two tones of blue, ornamented with a narrow braid in colours of Royal blue, gold, red and white.  This braid was designed by the Saint Bede Studio.
