A new Rose altar frontal
Last Sunday Fr John Saward blessed a new Rose coloured altar frontal, and tabernacle veil, for his church, SS Gregory & Augustine's in Oxford, immediately before celebrating the Traditional Mass for Gaudete Sunday. He already had a set of Rose vestments, and the frontal was made to order by the Oxford branch of the Guild of St Clare to match, as closely as possible. In the pictures you can see the frontal and tabernacle veil next to the chalice veil, which is part of the set of Rose vestments.
As far as I can see the colour matched perfectly; looking closely, there is a subtle pattern in each which is different.
