For Laetare Sunday 2019

Twice a year, the Church breaks the tone of its penitential seasons by the use of rose-coloured vestments.  Rose-coloured vestments were never commonplace and they still are not.  Many different colours have been deemed by the Church as acceptable as liturgical rose.  Some of these are a salmon shade; some a silvery-pink, almost mushroom-colour; some close to what we would call Bishop's purple or fuchsia; and some red with overtones of gold.

We are pleased to feature this chasuble set, made from dupion silk and lined in a subtle pink shade of taffeta. The orphrey of this chasuble is formed from a new braid designed by the Studio and called Saint Charles.  The braid has been especially designed for use with Rose and Indigo-violet vestments.

Festal Gothic Revival vestments

Saint AustinThe Studio has recently produced these vestments for a returning customer, a priest of the Diocese of Columbus (Ohio).  Since our customer's parish is dedicated to Saint Patrick, a festal chasuble with green in its ornamental scheme was requested.

The chasuble was made from a lovely English ecclesiastical brocade and lined in a soft-shade of green taffeta.  The ornament was formed from one of the Studio's unique braids, ChiRho.

On the importance of returning thanks

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee.  As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance,  they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean.  Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice.  He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan.  Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”  Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”
