This beautiful set was commissioned by close friends of a newly ordained Dominican priest in Benicia, CA this October. As witnesses to the new priest’s conversion to the faith and eventual discernment of the priesthood, theses friends dearly wanted to gift his community with something very special.
His parish was in need of a white cope which they wished could be Marian in theme. With the addition of a humeral veil and stole, the single cope could enjoy much more service on the altar as a Benediction set. After further discussion, an Italian cut cope was selected so that the hood could be made reversible to accommodate even more liturgical Feasts! Now this set can be used for Benediction and Processions – from Corpus Christi to Holy Thursday to Our Lady’s Feasts. No silk damask could work harder while looking so lovely!
