Church Furnishings

Church furnishings have been around for a long time. Some of the earliest were made of stone. They had designs carved into them and would be used to hold vessels with wine and oil, scrolls, and other things needed in the service.

Hayes & Finch church furnishings, however, are made with brass ware & wrought iron. Including glassware, silverware, brassware, candlesticks, communion sets, candle sticks, thuribles and tabernacles. These items are priceless.

Church Vestments

At Hayes & Finch Vestments, you can find hand-made chasubles and other vestments for sale. They are offered in various fabrics, styles and designs to meet the taste of every priest who wants high quality vestments, without having to pay the high price usually associated with them.

Many priests like the choice of the finest quality chasubles or everyday religious clothing. When you are officiating at a High Mass or other formal occasion, such as the administration of Holy Communion to a seriously ill person, or a wedding, you need to give your best and most dignified appearance. A simple chasuble that is plain in design will not do. You must appear before your congregation in the most dignified and impressive vestments that your parish can afford to buy.

The same applies with your congregation and being seen out and about in your parish. Having your best clergy shirt or religious clothing is still a priority for quality and value for money.

For repairs and restoration of your church vestments, Hayes & Finch will custom repair them for you. Whether it's the embroidery, lining or other aspects of your vestments that need to be repaired or replaced, our expert tailors can do this for you.
