Vestments from St. Vincent Archabbey

One of the monks from St. Vincent Archabbey recently wrote to me noting some of the historical vestments they have at their abbey church which they are hoping to preserve.

While all of the vestments they shared were splendid each in their own way, I was particularly taken by this vestment, for reason of the combination of the colours and textures which made it somewhat unique by comparison with what one would typically see.

The archabbey has a number of such vestments, some of which are in need of care and preservation.

If anyone believes they might be able to assist in such a project, please do not hesitate to contact Br. Gabriel.
