Choir Cassocks - $1,250
We are in need of red cassocks for the students at St. Thomas More Academy. They regularly practice the Propers of the Mass & hymns. This would allow them to vest for Mass during Academy days and eventually on Sundays too.
Eagle Lectern - $5,000
Eagle Lecterns predate the Reformation in the ancient English Catholic Tradition. The Eagle was thought to be able to gaze into the Sun and fly closest to heaven, just as we we approach heaven to gaze into Truth by hearing Scriptures read at the lectern.
Choir Surplices - $1,250
We are in need of surplices for the students at St. Thomas More Academy. These are the white vestments that go over the cassock. This would allow them to vest for Mass during Academy days and eventually on Sundays too.
