This information is for the ladies who wish to participate in the ancient Catholic and Biblical custom of veiling (1st Corinthians 11). Canon Law no longer requires women to wear veils, but it remains the normal custom for those who attend the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM). In some places, the custom is even returning to the New Vernacular Mass.
You can learn how to make your own chapel veil for about $3 (cost of material). These wonderful instructions come to us from Allena Jackson. (Click Here to See)
