UPDATE January 16, 2017 – I have removed the links to the crowdfunding page, as a total of $1,800.00 was donated so that I could purchase not only the white set pictured but also this green chasuble & stole! Thank you to all for your great generosity! I’m overwhelmed by the 21 generous gifts that came in — and so quickly. Know of my prayers for all!

Friends, with some trepidation I have decided to try a “crowdfunding” campaign in order to buy a new white vestment for my “personal” use. I say “personal” inasmuch as it would be technically of my possession and used mostly by me. But its use would be for the Church’s public worship – definitely not a merely “personal” affair! If I am able to raise the money needed, I will offer a total of ten (10) Masses for my benefactors over the next months.
The great vestment maker of London, Watts & Co., has a good discount offered right now, such that I can purchase the entire set pictured above for about $1,200 USD. That includes the extra “accessories” needed for the celebration of the Tridentine (old Latin) Mass, which I have been doing with greater frequency lately. I would be most grateful if you helped me reach the goal! If I don’t raise what’s needed, I’ll refund donations. Please see the crowdfunding page for more information: HERE.

Thank you for your consideration. Here, also, is an older post on this blog about the matter of beautiful vestments: HERE.
