Exquisite Hand-Embroidered Liturgical Veil (aer) Donated to the Cathedral.

(published March 29, 2010)

Cathedral members Carlos and Elena Coloma recently donated a hand-embroidered liturgical "aer" for use during the Divine Liturgy. The piece, hand-made by a artisan Nun in Romania, is a copy of an aer made for Nestor & Mitrofana Ureche, founders of the Secu Monastery in the late 17th century, and now kept in the museum of Sihastria Monastery in Moldova, Romania. This precious item is used liturgically to veil the bread and wine at the Service of Preparation of the Holy Gifts (Proskomedia) and at the Offertory. It will also be used as a winding sheet (embroidered icon of our Lord's entombment, also known as the plaschanitsa or epitafios) on the Holy Altar Table from Pascha until Ascension of the Lord.
We thank Elena and Carlos for their generosity and love for the Cathedral!
