Priestly Ordinations 2012: 3

We are pleased to continue our annual series of vestments prepared by the Studio for Ordinands.

The third in this series of Ordination vestments features a  sets of vestments prepared for the Rev'd James Mangan who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Saint Mary's Cathedral, Diocese of Lansing (Michigan USA) on 23rd June.

The ordinand asked for a set of vestments in the Saint Philip Neri style.  A beautiful silk damask in a muted shade of gold was chosen for the vestments (a chasuble and dalmatic).

The dalmatic was ornamented simply in the Roman style with an outline galloon in burgundy and gold, whilst the chasuble had its orphreys enhanced with a Renaissance-style damask in crimson and old gold. The vestments were fully lined in burgundy dupion silk.

The adjacent photographs shew the dalmatic and chasuble.

Please pray for Father Mangan and all newly-ordained priests.
