Vesture of Bishops During Private Episcopal Sacraments
without Solemnity

 

From an Apostolic Rescript of 8 May 2021 (APS 11:4)

When administering sacraments proper to bishops (ordination and confirmation), and when doing so privately without solemnity as appropriate to circumstances, bishops may vest as follows in place of full pontifical dress:

1. Rochet

2. Optional cotta over the rochet.

3. Stole according to season.

4. Mitre according to season and liturgical day.

When this option is used, the mozzetta or mantelletta is laid aside, even by jurisdictional bishops.

If administering First Tonsure or ordaining to the orders of Porter through Acolyte inclusive, they may omit the mitre, and the mozzetta or mantelletta is likewise laid aside.

In the case of administering First Tonsure or ordaining to the orders of Porter through Acolyte inclusive, the Archfather alone may instead use the mozzetta with stole over it if the mitre is not worn.
