Sacred Vestments, Sacred Vessels Exhibition
On Sunday, June 11, St. John’s Cathedral debuted an exhibition of liturgical vestments and vessels in Taliaferro Hall. The exhibition will run through Sunday, September 17.
The exhibition includes five chasubles (garments wore by a priest in the liturgy) in the five liturgical colors of white, red, blue, purple and green, as well as the garment worn under the chasuble and the cincture which is worn around the priest's waist. A vestment called a cope is also included. Explanatory texts concerning the history and meaning of the vestments are available at the exhibition. Sacred vessels used in the liturgy are also a focus of the exhibition. Articles include chalices, patens, linens and other objects. In presenting these sacred and beautiful garments and vessels, St. John’s wants to help the members of the congregation and the wider public better understand the use and symbolic meaning of these sacred vestments and vessels.
The exhibition is the combined effort of many individuals and groups at St. John's Cathedral. We encourage you to join us for a reception opening during the exhibition’s run. We will announce that date later.
