Traditional Vestment Fundraiser for Missions in India
#1
Hey Fisheaters!  My wife Cecil is making a gold, solemn, High Mass vestment set for Fr. Therasian Xavier, SSPX, Prior over SSPX Missions in India.  The vestments will be used for the solemn celebration of the traditional Latin Mass at their priory.  Father has asked me to organize a gofundme online fundraiser for this project, since the missions in India are very poor.  But the priests there are trying to spread Catholic Tradition to this pagan land.

The set includes:

chasuble/stole/maniple/burse/chalice veil
dalmatic/stole/maniple 
tunic/maniple 
cope 
humeral veil
tabernacle veil
embroidered images of Our Lord, Our Lady, etc.
Very fine embroidery to make the set ornate

Father will offer a Mass for all donors.  For donations of a certain amount, Cecil will embroider the donor's name on the inside/back of the chasuble (main garment), so Father can offer the Mass for you for many years to come.

Would you consider helping Father spread the Latin Mass to India?  Please SHARE on Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.  Thanks, and God bless!


(Thank you to Vox for approving this thread!  I will try and check in for questions and discussion, or feel free to PM me)

We've reached 1/3 of our goal in 4 days!  But we still have a ways to go.  Please SHARE with others!

Cecil has the honor of making a solemn vestment set, which is the equivalent of 3-4 basic vestment sets in terms of materials and labor time.  Plus she is adding a lot of embroidery to make them very ornate, something traditionally valued by Catholics in India.  These can be used in pontifical Masses with a bishop.

Solemn set includes:

chasuble, stole, maniple, burse, chalice veil
dalmatic, stole, maniple
tunic, stole, maniple
cope
humeral veil
fine embroidery, including embroidered emblems of
Our Lord, Our Lady, etc.
(plus tabernacle veil)

The best site for us to use right now is gofundme, which receives 7.9% of donations ($343 for this project).
Plus, we need $50 for domestic shipping ordering materials, and $150 to ship the whole set to India.
