Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for priestly Ordinands. Happily, 2017 was no exception. It is always a particular pleasure for us to make vestments for Australian ordinands.

In this post, we are pleased to draw attention to the ordination of Father Sebastian Hew of the Archdiocese of Sydney (Australia).  Father Hew was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Mary's Cathedral on 24th August by the Archbishop of Sydney, the Most Rev'd Anthony Fisher OP, along with another ordinand.

Father Hew commissioned a set of red vestments from the Studio in the Borromeon style.

The vestments were made from a silk damask in ruby-red.  The ornament, in the Roman style, was formed from a brocade in colours of burgundy and gold, outlined with a galloon in the same colours. The vestments were lined in a burgundy-coloured taffeta, matching the colour of the orphrey.

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

We are pleased to include in this post a photograph taken during the Ordination Mass of Father Hew, in addition to another photograph kindly supplied to us by Father Hew.
