Our Pastor and many pastors around here wear the Traditional cassock on a regular basis. I’m glad they do.


I love seeing nuns in traditional habits too!

Both our priest always wear clerical collars.

Our Pastor wears the Traditional cassock regularly as well. It’s nice to see.

Sadly, I have only ever seen Eastern Orthodox clerics wearing the traditional cassock. Catholic priests wear casual garb, occasionally with a collar.
