New Project Inquiries

 

We thank you for the overwhelming number of new requests we've received and pray we will be able to graciously provide each project with the care and personal attention required to make these custom sets, ever mindful of their purpose of glorifying Our Lord in worship of Him.

 

Working in the order we receive requests

"Placeholder Requests" can be made at any time of the year to get on the list for any given Ordination year. Just send an email requesting to be put on our list (again, we will work in the order received).

 

Design and Planning

We will begin the design and planning phase in earnest during the summer prior to your final year of Seminary.  In this way, designs, pricing and plans are solidified prior to your return to study. We want you to be free to focus during your final year of preparation -- and we'll sew like crazy while you do! This is very efficient!

 

Help us see your vision

Gather photos of vestments you love or motifs you'd like to incorporate (i.e. Marian symbols, etc.). Consider including devotions which are personally meaningful to you. What kinds of fabrics do you require? (silk only? metallic threads?) Is there a budget range you'd like to work to? How many pieces in the set? Roman or Gothic cuts?

 

Pray for each other

Part of the joy we receive in this blessed work is the agreement to pray for each other while we collaborate to create something beautiful for Our Lord. There are many hands who contribute -- and we are so grateful for your prayers. Let us pray for each other's intentions and that Our Lord's Will be done in all of our labors.

Truly beautiful vestments

give glory and honor to Our Lord

 

We are Catholics making Catholic vestments out of a deep desire to adorn Our Lord’s altar with the beauty and honor due Him. We are inspired by the treasures that graced the altars of the past, once made by cloistered nuns. Every stitch, prayerfully and lovingly crafted for the highest possible purpose -- the worship of Our Lord at His Holy altar.

 

Our vestments are not "mass" produced.

 

Our greatest joy is to help priests and parishes create glorious new vestments or put old vestments back into service that are truly worthy of the altar.

 

What about cost?

 

Our vestments cost more than those made of cheaper materials, but ours are far superior in beauty and Christian symbolism --  and less expensive (and more durable) than many antiques. Even though our vestment designs might look old, they are new, free from damage and gloriously ready for years of use in the Sacred Mass.

 

Vestments are handmade (and prayerfully made) in the United States.
