I have finished the vestments and altar cloths for my parish!
Some basic information – the fabric is silk and rayon brocade (silk face, rayon backing). The fringe, galloon and crosses are real metal thread from Russia – I now have a collection of boxes with postage from other countries, as at about the same time I got these things, I purchased something on eBay that came from Belgium. I basically copied a set of vestments at my parish, with some help from Fr. Golini’s “Making Byzantine Vestments” which I purchased from Light & Life Publishing.
So, without further ado, here are Pentecost vestments for St. Mary’s Holy Protection Byzantine Catholic Church:
Thank you, Lord, for your strength and guidance in my work. You are the fulfillment of all good things. Fill also my soul with joy and gladness, that I may praise you always. Amen.
(Prayer from the prayerbook “Beneath the Mantle of Your Mercy”, printed by Basilian Press, Toronto).
