THEY’RE HERE! White Pontifical Mass Vestments

They’re here.

The long-awaited White Pontifical set has arrived!

I invited the chancellor to help with the unboxing.

The humeral veil reveals itself.  The light on this fabric is precisely what I had hoped for.

One of the 3 dalmatics which arrived today.  Still to arrive, a couple more “plus size” dalmatics.  Then there will be others for ordinations.

Note, the diocesan coat of arms is embroidered directly into the fabric.

Two of the copes.  Eventually there will be a total of 7.  I asked for one of them to have the extra-band of braid, to distinguish the celebrant from assistants, or bishop from the assistant priest.  Note the coat of arms on the lower corners.

The bishop’s chasuble with his arms.  We also received one chasuble with the diocesan coat of arms, the first of several.  Also, there will be one with my own.

There are two tunics (which have only one bar on the back).  In addition, there is an antpendium, gremial, all the necessary parts with the chasubles, two additional pontifical dalmatics, a spare pair of gloves.

We have been waiting for these for a long time.

I am so grateful to the donors for this project!

And don’t forget the new fundraiser! Our new campaign to help with the Blue and also to order “folded chasubles” for the Violet set.

    Mighty fine addition to the arsenal, Father Z!
    We want photographs of their maiden voyage at the Queenship of Mary Mass. May her Immaculate Heart triumph.

    If you are ordering folded chasubles, are you ordering broad stole also?

    OK, I did a quick search but didn’t come up with a clear explanation of what a folded chasuble is.
    What you have is completely beautiful. I’m hoping beauty makes a comeback soon all over the Church.

    Excellent choice with having the coat of arms embroidered right on to the fabric. After spending copious money “on the finest material and sparing no expense” (which was what we were told about our new vestments), they didn’t get the emblem embroidered directly onto the vestment, which IMHO, severely cheapened the appearance of the vestments.

    Pretty amazing workmanship.

    [They do a good job, they are flexible, and they deliver, which is why I keep going back to them.]

    Beautiful! Noble Simplicity, paired with understated richness of fabric and first class workmanship. These vestments will last 500 years.
