Priestly Ordinations 2014 : 5

Each year, the Saint Bede Studio has the privilege of preparing sacred vestments for Ordinands. Happily, this year has been no exception : indeed the number of requests for such vestments has been more than double previous years.

This post concerns Father Bryan Shackett, of the Archdiocese of Detroit (Michigan, USA), who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by the Most Rev'd Allen Vigneron in the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on 7th June.  Father Shackett has been a student of the Pontifical North American College.

Father Shackett commissioned vestments made in the Borromeon form for his First Holy Mass. The chasuble (shewn adjacent) was made from a beautiful silk damask in crimson red and was ornamented with a damask in the colours of burgundy, red and gold, outlined with narrow braids, in the Roman style. The vestments were lined in bronze-coloured taffeta.

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