Prelates and deacons in significant roles wore the six new vestments that were sewn for the installation and future celebrations by Candice Koopmeiners of St. Francis Xavier in Sartell, in consultation with Tildy Ellis, of St. Boniface in Cold Spring.

The vestments coordinate with the existing chasubles and dalmatics that were sewn for the millennium celebration and are worn by priests and deacons of the diocese for special Masses at the cathedral.

Deacon Steve Pareja and his wife, Donna, embroidered the vestments.
