Priestly Ordinations 2011 part 1

Over the last 2-3 months, the Studio has been busily engaged in making chasubles for ordinands to the Sacred Priesthood.  At last we are in a position to post some photographs of the vestments that have been made.

Firstly, a set of vestments made for Father Matthew Hardesty of Kentucky, USA.  The vestments are made from an ivory silk damask, fully lined in gold dupion silk.  The orphrey was formed from a straw-coloured silk damask, alternating with fleur-de-lis emblems.

We are pleased to include a photograph of the vestments taken at the celebration of Father Hardesty's First Mass.  Congratulations, Father.
