Pics of Scarlet Paraments

They're beautiful!

We have no scarlet here; our red Pentecost ones are used for Palm Sunday. I'll have to work on both that, and the fact that there is not one single Palm Sunday banner in the banner closet. Weird, eh?

Oh, my Father Will. Beautiful.

Our Scarlet paraments and vestments are a bit darker and more, uh, contemporary in detail. (Castle Craft, then part of Augsburg Fortress, now part of Gaspard, made them.) They certainly help in setting off Holy Week.

Very nice! Thanks for the pictures.

We have some very talented ladies at our church who have made most of the paraments, including some lovely scarlet ones that we have up today.

Beautiful, Will. They accentuate Holy Week-- setting it apart from even Lent-- along with all of the other sensual (in a holy way :) stimuli and the powerful Word of this week.

Where did you purchase them?

My scarlet stole has black banding on it-- I love it. But it would be nice to have the paraments and other vestments.

Blessed Pascha, brother

Blessed Pascha to you too, John. They are from D. K. Brunner and Son. Inexpensive (both gold and scarlet sets ran together about $1500)
