color of the vestments for the processions and the Mass is violet.
However, when a church is dedicated to St. Mark, the color of the
vestments is red for the Mass on St. Mark's feast.
(a) For the Procession Followed by Mass.
1. IN THE SACRISTY.
Vestments for the celebrant: Amice, alb, cincture, violet stole, violet
cope. Vestments for the deacon: Amice, alb, cincture, violet stole,

(2) The processional cross.
(3) Acolytes' candlesticks with lighted candles.
(4) Candles for those taking part in the procession.
2. ON THE ALTAR.
(1) Tabernacle veil, violet.
(2) Antependium, violet.
For the Mass, should the vestments be of a different color than violet,
the tabernacle veil and antependium are changed to harmonize.
(3) All else is as usual for a Solemn Mass.
3. ON THE CREDENCE TABLE.
All is as usual for a Solemn Mass.
4. AT THE SEDILIA.
(1) Violet chasuble and maniple for celebrant.
(2) Violet maniples for deacon and subdeacon.
As before remarked, however, should the church be dedicated to St.
Mark, then the color of the vestments for Mass is red and hence the
vestments at the sedilia would include complete sets for each minister
in that color.
