A Look At Women Clergy Robes And What Their Significance

The clergy is a collective name for religious leaders of different Christian religious denominations. This includes pastors, priests, evangelists, deacons, bishops and other leaders of the Christian faith. Some denominations do ordain women to serve in the ministry and they need women clergy robes to do so.

The vestment that the female religious leaders wear includes surplices, cloaks, clergy shirts and blouses. They also wear adornments in form of accessories like pins and crosses. An outfit that is complete is has various vestments items.

One day to day item is shirts and blouses. It is one of the most obvious ministry symbols that they wear. It is not only a clear indicator that a woman is in ministry but also of her position in the church. The best ones to choose are those that are comfortable and easy to launder and maintain as well as being durable.

There are various kinds of shirts and blouses. Some are sleeveless, others have short sleeves and others long sleeves. Some have slits on the side so that they can be worn loose without being tucked in. There are also those without the sleeves that are worn tucked in. They come in a variety of colors with some colors being reserved for senior leaders. Other female leaders often wear black and light blue vestment.

The blouses and shirts are made to be able to hold different types of collars. Female bishops and other senior female clergy have their own kind of collars that go into their shirts and blouses. Those serving in other positions have tab collars and high collars that go into their shirts or their blouses. These collars come with different kinds of buttons. Some are gold plated and others are made of chrome. There are simple buttons and also hinged collar round top and tear drop buttons.

Another item worn by female church leaders is cassocks. It resembles a full dress with full sleeves. It has different designs but is it us typically a long, robe with a raised collar. Senior leaders usually wear it in other colors other than black that other female clergy wear. A cassock may be combined with an alb to make a cassock-alb. It is typically white with a long tie around the waist that lies on the side. Most have pocket side openings.

Then there are surplices. Different denominations had their own. It was a round neck yoke for Anglicans and a square one for Roman styles. Today, both styles are worn by female clergy of all denominations. They are typically worn over cassocks and are usually white in color.

For the outdoors, there is the cloak. It is made of a heavy fabric such as wool because it is means to be worn outside. The arm openings are typically welted and they fasten with at the front.

Accessories usually accompany women clergy robes. Crosses are one such accessory that is worn as a pendant on a neck chain. The different chains for holding the pendants and neck cords are available. There are also crosses and pins that are usually reserved for deacons.
