Unique liturgical vestments made by Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus are very popular when showcased the Sacroexpo in Targi Kielce. The latest models of chasubles, priestly stoles sewn by hand and with the help of a computer are available for viewing and purchase from 19 to 21 June

The Congregation of the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus has been associated with the Sacroexpo Exhibition since 2009, it presents the highest quality liturgical paraments in the Kielce exhibition and congress centre.

– Our hand-made, painted, shaded and classic-embroidery adorned products;  we embroider with gold threads, and satin threads, which gives the garments a unique beauty. Recently, we also do computer embroidery, we have various patterns and we keep looking for new ones – says Sister Lydia.

Many valuable works were created in the embroidery workshops run by Vestiarki sisters. Particularly noteworthy are four adornments for the miraculous image of Our Lady of Częstochowa, a dress for the image of Our Lady for Czerna and Studzianna, and a dress for Our Lady of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and for Our Lady of Leżajsk. The Vestiarki Sisters created a millennium chasuble as a gift for Bl. Primate of the Millennium, for St. Paul VI, jubilee chasuble for St.  John Paul II, donated by the Pauline Fathers on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the presence of Our Lady at Jasna Góra, as well as vestments for the Polish Seminary in Orchard Lake.  The Vestiarki made numerous works for the pilgrimages of St.  John Paul II to Poland and a set of liturgical vestments for Jasna Góra on the occasion of Pope Francis' apostolic trip to Poland in 2016.  The Congregation of the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus also takes care of the decor of religious buildings during the Eucharist, nurturing the tradition of dressing altars for Corpus Christi, preparing decorations for liturgical celebrations in parishes or embroidering chalice linen.

Our task as the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus is to care for the beauty of the Church. It is our charism to take care of the decoration of the Churches, the chalice and the priest.  We have been sewing and repairing liturgical vestments since the founding of the Congregation, i.e. 140 years ago. Our predecessors left us legacy of beautiful designs and work rules, we have maintained for generations, but we are also open to new things – adds S. Lydia

Unique works of the Congregation of the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus will be presented during this year's 24th Sacroexpo.
