Default What are the vestment colours for ordination?

what is the colour of the chasuble at an ordination? Of all the pictures I have seen these vestments are of some shade of white with decorative gold orphreys. my parish wants white with solid emerald green orphreys for an upcoming ordination.

Default Re: ordination colours


White is the basic color, although gold is also allowed. The Church doesn't specify what color the decorations are. So you can go with the green. I suspect that your are writing from Ireland with your spelling of "colour."

Happy Easter!

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
