Church Item Memorial Fund

The Church Item Memorial Fund consists of donations given in honor of or in memory of loved ones. Donating to the Church Item Memorial Fund is an opportunity both to remember your loved ones and help the parish defer the cost of much needed items for worship and prayer. Examples of items purchased by the Fund include vestments, altar hangings, sacristy items, etc. The Fund may also be used for improvement and enhancement of our church facilities and church grounds. 

 

Important Notes:

  • Gifts both large and small are most welcome and appreciated.
  • In gratitude to those donating to the Memorial Fund, Incarnation Church issues an “In Memoriam” certificate, acknowledges the donor and memorialized item in our bulletin for one weekend, and posts the item and the name(s) of one’s loved one(s) on this page in thanksgiving for one year.
  • Please note, in order to maintain the dignity and beauty of certain items, unless it can be marked in an inconspicuous place, the actual item will not be inscribed.
  • To arrange a memorial, please contact Irene Martinez at the church office or call 813-885-7861.

                Vestment Hangers

The priestly vestments called the chasuble and stole are what the priest must wear when celebrating Mass. Since these vestments are very special, these special vestment hangers are designed to ensure the items are protected and well cared for.  

 Hangers Donated Anonymously
We are grateful for your generosity.

 

Concelebrant Chasubles              

When more than one priest celebrates the same Mass, the main priest is called the “Celebrant,” and the other priests are called “Concelebrants.” To help illustrate unity, as well as to offer aesthetic symmetry among the celebrating priests, it is nice to have matching vestments. Currently we are in need of two concelebrant chasubles to match the one white celebrant chasuble we already have. White is the universal liturgical color and can be worn at most Masses. As of July 1, 2013, both chasubles have been funded.

               Concelebrant Stoles

When more than one priest celebrates the same Mass, the main priest is called the “Celebrant,” and the other priests are called “Concelebrants.” To help illustrate unity, as well as to offer aesthetic symmetry among the celebrating priests, it is nice to have matching vestments. However, when there are more concelebrating priests than there are concelebrant chasubles, the remaining concelebrants wear a stole without the chasuble. White is the universal liturgical color and can be worn at most Masses.

Adoring Angels      

In an effort to beautify our Chapel of Reposition, these two adoring angels are placed on either side of the tabernacle to add nobility and holiness to the decor. These angels stand 28 inches tall.
