Location: St Dimitrios Hall of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral.   Presvytera Krista West is a professional seamstress and has been making vestments since 1994, she also gives lectures on Orthodox Liturgical Vestments and has a  Podcast; The Opinionated Tailor”.

“For many churchgoers, a priest’s vestments are a distinctive feature of Orthodox Church services. But we may not be aware of their full significance. To learn more about them, the Hellenic-American Cultural Center & Museum is sponsoring a lecture on the history and symbolism of vestments and various altar cloths used in the Orthodox Church.

If you have ever wondered how the traditions of liturgical vestments started and how they evolved, this presentation by Presvytera Krista West of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church will be of great interest.”  St George Website
