Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

Recently the Saint Bede Studio refurbished a set of black vestments which was made with great devotion by a Religious in the 1960s.  The old silvery ornament was very tired, but yet the vestments were still quite usable.

Removing all the braids, which had been sewn down with both precision and diligence, a new orphrey was applied, using a new braid in red and gold, designed by AWN Pugin.

The chasuble was presented as a benefaction to the Church of Saint Thomas of Canterbury, Lewisham (Archdiocese of Sydney).
