All Saints' Day: Ohio

Some months ago, Father Martin Fox of Piqua, Ohio USA approached us to make a set of vestments for use in his Parish, based on the familiar pictures of Saint Philip Neri. The result is shewn in the picture at the left. This chasuble is of gold silk damask and is ornamented with the same damask in copper and gold. The effect is very rich.

The Saint Bede Studio developed its own interpretation of this 16th century style of chasuble, based upon extensive research, but adapted for modern use. It is not an attempt to exactly reproduce 16th century exemplars. This Philip Neri chasuble has proved a particularly popular style with young priests.

Read what Father Fox wrote about his new vestments.
