Priestly Ordinations 2019 : 9

Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for priestly Ordinands. Happily, 2019 was no exception. Several more vestments from 2019 have yet to be posted on the Studio blog, which deficiency we are pleased now to remedy.

This post features a set of vestments made for an ordinand from the Diocese of Wichita (Kansas USA), who commissioned a set of festal vestments from the Studio in the Gothic Revival form.

These vestments were made from a beautiful silk damask in shades of ivory and straw. The ornament was formed from one of the Studio's unique braids called Saint Marie. The vestments were lined in a red-coloured taffeta.

Please pray for for all newly-ordained priests.

NEW : Saint Cuthbert vestments

The Saint Bede Studio
Since 2016 the Saint Bede Studio has occasionally been offering for sale a new range of simpler vestments, unlined and less expensive than our usual work. Not everyone can afford expensive vestments, whilst others, for various reasons, prefer a more modest beauty. 

Our "economy" vestments are made from simpler, good-quality fabrics and ornamented with our distinctive and unique braids. Simpler they may be, but there is no diminution of the quality for which the Studio has become so highly-regarded.

During this year, we will be offering for sale three varieties of "economy" chasuble sets to our customers.  These are :




In this post, we illustrate an example of the Saint Cuthbert vestments, which will be available in all the liturgical colours.  More ample than our usual Gothic vestments, these unlined chasuble will be ornamented with a chevron of brocade or damask and with narrow braids, as illustrated.  This particular chasuble was made with a matching amice apparel.

These simpler vestments will continue occasionally to be offered for sale via the Studio Blog. 

Please pray for God’s continued Blessing on our work.

To our Readers in an Hour of Tribulation

We are sending this message to all those who usually read the blog of the Saint Bede Studio, located in Newcastle, Australia.

In Australia, the effects of the epidemic have taken hold, as they have in other nations. Massive disruption will ensue over the next several months.

The Studio continues to carry out its daily work, which is somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of commercial enterprise. We will continue to work on our commissions, providing each customer with his vestments in as timely a manner as possible. We take with great seriousness our commitment to each and every customer. Not one customer is overlooked or forgotten.

Posts on the Studio blog will continue each week.  In the forthcoming week, we will be distributing our Newsletter to readers and to customers past and present.

We are receiving new orders and invite your enquiries for 2021.

We are mindful that for our customers and readers of this blog, the coming months will pose many challenges, sorrows, frustrations and disappointments. We wish to place all these things in the context of Faith. At the Studio, we have been praying each day for God's mercy in softening the effects of the epidemic. This includes all our customers.
