The chasuble is the outermost liturgical vestment worn by clergy for the celebration of the Eucharist in Western-tradition Christian Churches that use full vestments, primarily in the Roman Catholic Church, in the Anglican churches, and in some parts of the United Methodist Church. It is also used as the primary Eucharistic vestment in many Lutheran parishes. In the Eastern Churches of Byzantine Rite, the equivalent vestment is the phelonion.
"The vestment proper to the priest celebrant at Mass and other sacred actions directly connected with Mass is, unless otherwise indicated, the chasuble, worn over the alb and stole" (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, 337). Like the stole, it is normally of the liturgical colour of the Mass/service being celebrated.
The chasuble originated as a sort of conical poncho, called in Latin a "casula" or "little house," that was the common outer traveling garment in the late Roman Empire. It was simply a roughly oval piece of cloth, with a round hole in the middle through which to pass the head, that fell below the knees on all sides. It had to be gathered up on the arms to allow the arms to be used freely.
We offer a large range of remarkably stylish, keenly priced vestments. Designed with practical, everyday use in mind, most of our vestments are easy to care for and may be gently machine washed. You may also like to add a degree of weight and drape to your garment by adding a lining to the vestment which will also act to protect the outer fabric.
Should you require linings to vestments , simply select from the drop-down menu for each product where this option is offered.
We are able to offer all styles in various neckline designs - so for example if you prefer a standard, woven chasuble design but perhaps wanted a Semi Gothic neckline instead, we can make the garment to your specification.
We can mix and match all styles and designs - just simply tell us what you require.
“Thou shalt put on them the holy vestments, that they may minister to me,
and that the unction of them may prosper to an everlasting priesthood.”
