Do All Catholic Churches Wear Choir Robes?
Hey I go to this church i am the organist and music director for saturday litrugy and I was wondering how come no other catholic churches i ever gone to but this one NOT wear any robes?
Catholic parishes maintain robes for the choir. However, this doesn’t mean they wear them constantly.
In my parish, the choir only dawns the robes for only the most significant Masses; Christmas Easte, etc.
Simple – wear and tear.
For starters, choir robes are not necessary. Nor are they the most important item on a parish’s budget.
Most parishes that purchase choir robes want to make them last as long as possible. That means only wearing them for the most solemn and/or significant Mass celebrations.
