F. PRIEST'S FIRST SOLEMN MASS

Previous | Index | Next

A priest's first Mass is always a Solemn High Mass, where circumstances permit. However on such occasions in addition to the celebrant, the deacon and subdeacon, another priest, named the Arch-Priest, who assists the celebrant, is permitted. He may wear a stole and cope over the surplice, using the same color for the cope and stole as the vestments of the Mass. A chair should be placed near the sedilia for the Arch-Priest.

The Altar should be beautifully adorned on such an occasion. The vestments are the color of the day but gold vestments are permissible in place of white, red or green.
