Vestments

For the Marriage, I wore a cope which is called the 'Louis XV' cope. It was made by order of King Louis XV of France as a gift for his youngest daughter Princess Louise-Marie when she entered the Carmel. It came to the college in 1953 from the Goodier family.

The chasuble for Holy Mass The Lamb White Chasuble. This is one if the few sets at Stonyhurst which can still be traced back to use in Liège and St Omer. It is 17th century Flemish work. The back shows the Lamb and the Book if the Apocalypse.
