Jubilee Celebration

This photo is of the altar party of Fr Phlip Warner SSC's Mass celebrating 25 years of priestly ministry on Wednesday 1st July, Feast of the Precious Blood, at St. Magnus the Martyr.


  1. ad multos annos!

    Are the servers wearing amices under their cassocks?

  2. Thank you for your question.

    Yes, the custom at S. Magnus is for servers to wear an amice under the cassock, in order to cover the collar of their shirt and to give the appearence of uniformity and tidiness. In practice, we use long strips of white fabric which is either wrapped around the neck (as I have done, in the picture on the far left)or tied at the front (as the crucifer has elected to do).

  3. Looking good, gentlemen!
