New Vestments

It's not just the residential buildings and teaching facilities that are being renovated. St Stephen's House has taken delivery of a number of complete new sets of Mass vestments and frontals for the House Chapel and Church. Most of the frontals in use to date came from Norham Gardens and have been in need or repair for some time.

Thanks to recent benefactions, the House has been able to purchase complete sets of vestments in most liturgical colours (white, red, purple, green and black), and frontals to match. The altar in the chapel of the Holy Name, the High Altar, the Nave Altar and the altar of St Cyprian of Carthage (where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the House), are now all vested.

The work was carried out by the local firm, Luzar Vestments. Further photographs can be viewed here.
