I have been serving in my parish for 16 years now and recently the parish mc have died and I have been told by my Parish preist that I’m the new mc. I felt really honored that he chosen me to be the mc. I was also told that I can by a new surplices and I have and I’m was wondering what People options on my new surplices.
That’s a beautiful surplice. Where is it from?
I own the Vienna surplice from Almy at almy.com/Product1/zc0004110/category/SurplicesForMen/parent/ClergyApparel-Man. It is very long and interferes with kneeling so I have ordered the one from Gaspard pictured below. It is very short compared to most. It also has eight thinner pleats which I like.
Gaspard makes some nice appliques if that is what you mean by options. gaspardinc.com/fabric-trim-altar-linens/appliques.html. l like the lilies applique but don’t want to clutter the look and so haven’t decided yet.
You can always have it embroidered. Some vendors will offer embroidery for a small fee but then you can’t return it. A gold Jerusalem cross on the front would be nice.
I had a look at alms but I wanted that has IHS design lace inset. I think for Easter I might get a new cassock with a band cincture
So what do you mean by options? Are you looking for appliques or embroidery?
Here is a picture of the lace insert on the Almy surplice.
I’ve order it and now I’m waighting for it
