I started a campaign to have new vestments made and YOU AMAZING readers made it happen.
I received word from Commander Father Johnson that he received the new travel vestments and alb!
Thank you and your extremely generous readers from the bottom of my heart! These are truly beautiful and yet very practical. I will remember you and all your benefactors at the altar frequently.
Here are a couple photos he sent of the vestments. These are reversible. So, you have, below, views of the different sides in two pics.
Green/Purple – Red/White – Rose/Black
They have all the pieces need for the Extraordinary Form, which Father celebrates regularly. When I subbed for him at GITMO I, too, used the EF. Then I asked Angelus Press to send him some hand missals and other materials. They are squared away.
When I was in Rome last May I purchased the fabric and took everything to Gammarelli, who had made my travel set. The photos don’t quite capture the depth of color and the texture. They are silk.
I am very pleased at the results. As a matter of fact, Fr Johnson chose better combinations than I did with my own travel sets (which several of you donated).
What a great project and good cause. HOOYAH! You people are the best.
And when my buddy Charlie says he’ll remember you at Mass, he means it. He’ll remember you at Mass.
