A Prayer for those who work to beautify God's House

The Saint Bede Studio

This prayer has been composed to seek God's Blessings on the work of the Saint Bede Studio, but it is also intended for the benefit of all those who work for the beautification of God's House. Perhaps you will read this prayer regularly and share it with others.

That in all things God may be glorified.

Considering an order with the Studio for vestments?

The Saint Bede Studio

Would you like to support our work for the beautification of the Church's liturgy?  Please consider placing an order for vestments with us at this time or the near future.  We would welcome your business.

Enquirers, look at this link.

Pope Benedict XVI

This image shews His late Holiness, Pope Benedict wearing vestments made for him by the Saint Bede Studio in 2008.  These vestments, together with the matching mitre are now preserved in the sacristy of Saint Peter's Basilica, Rome.  Only a select few vestment-makers are given the opportunity to make vestments for the Pope and the Saint Bede Studio is among them!  We are very mindful of this immense privilege.

At the Saint Bede Studio, we are a small firm of Catholics making vestments for Catholics.

On the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On this Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we are pleased to describe this Marian chasuble which we call Ave Maris Stella,  being in the Gothic Revival style.

The decorative focus of this vestment is an orphrey braid which is based on the work of AWN Pugin.  This braid is produced in two shades of blue (lighter and darker) with figured ornament in gold.

These vestments were made from an ecclesiastical damask in the shade of ivory and lined in a Royal Blue taffeta.
