Investiture with the Pallium of  the Most Rev Anthony Fisher, OP. 

On behalf of Pope Francis I, the Apostolic Nuncio formally invested Archbishop Fisher with the Pallium during a special celebration at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, Australia on July 25.

An ecclesiastical vestment, the Pallium is a sign of unity with the Pope, the universality of the church as well as the Archbishop's responsibility as shepherd of a local church.

Granda was pleased to provide the red and gold chasuble as well as miter for the Archbishop, the red and gold chasuble for the Apostolic Nuncio, as well as dalmatics for the deacons.  In addition, the gold candlesticks, the altar cross, the altar cloth as well as gold-plated cover for the Book of the Gospels were also crafted by Granda and used during the Mass.

A Custom Tabernacle for an Oratory in a Clinic.

Granda has crafted a silver-plated custom tabernacle for the newly renovated oratory at the clinic at the University of the Andes in Chile.  

Entirely silver-plated, the tabernacle is decorated with Marian scenes: relief of the Virgin and Child on the front door and Coronation of the Virgin relief on the back. The interior of the tabernacle is plated with 24K gold.

The rosettas around and above the door are shaped as stylized dogwood flowers symbolic of the Passion of Christ.  The door is also enriched with the Eucharist themed reliefs of grapes and wheat while the roof the tabernacle forms a cross when seen from above.
In addition, Granda has provided two sanctuary lamps, a set of six altar candlesticks, an altar cross.  The holy water vat as well as a lace altar cloth, surplices, and a custom hand embroidered Marian chasuble were all used during the dedication Mass.


World Meeting of Families. 

We are pleased to announce that Granda has been awarded a commission for chasubles for the two Papal Masses that will be celebrated during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia in September.

Our Los Rosales team has designed and completed two sets of vestments: a set of 65 chasubles in white and a set of 65 chasubles in green for the attending cardinals and bishops, matching dalmatics, as well as 2 custom chasubles and miters for His Holiness Pope Francis I.  We look forward to sharing photos from both Masses in the October issue of our newsletter.
