UPDATE: I will be adding more visitation epitrachelia to this page by early November.
Visitation epitrachelia are a wonderful gift for any priest. They are designed to be an easy-to-transport, durable epitrachelion (stole) for the priest to take to hospital visitations, baby namings, and houseblessings.
Over the years, I have had several clients who used the epitrachelion from a cherished set of vestments as their visitation epitrachelion and it was sadly stolen out of their car between visitations, thereby causing them to effectively lose an entire set of vestments because they no longer had the epitrachelion of the vestment set. To avoid this happening, I highly recommend purchasing a visitation epitrachelion for any priest you know and love. I use the best of my brocades so that these epitrachelia bring beauty and color to hospital beds and homes.
Most visitation epitrachelion are made in the one-piece style to avoid buttons coming undone and they come with a durable poplin storage bag for transport and storage. Two piece epitrachelia are available occasionally on the Priest Vestments, Bargains page.
