Father Sypher was ordained in a Saint Philip Neri style chasuble made by the Saint Bede Studio and presented to him by friends. The chasuble was made of silver and straw-coloured silk damask, ornamented with orphreys of burgundy and straw brocade according to the Roman style. The photograph below shews the rear of the chasuble.
A similar chasuble is illustrated here.

Firstly, a set of vestments made for Father Matthew Hardesty of Kentucky, USA. The vestments are made from an ivory silk damask, fully lined in gold dupion silk. The orphrey was formed from a straw-coloured silk damask, alternating with fleur-de-lis emblems.
We are pleased to include a photograph of the vestments taken at the celebration of Father Hardesty's First Mass. Congratulations, Father.
