Priceless vestment from Ushaw College to be worn by Cardinal at Requiem Mass of King Richard III

From Durham-

A PRICELESS vestment believed to be from the royal wardrobe of King Richard III will be worn by the Cardinal when he celebrates Requiem Mass for the soul of the 15th century monarch, it has been revealed.

The chasuble, known as the Westminster Vestment, is part of the heritage collection of Ushaw College, the former Catholic seminary at Ushaw Moor, near Durham.

It will be taken to Leicester for a Mass in the city’s Holy Cross Church on Monday (March 23) - days before the king’s reburial in Leicester Cathedral on Thursday, March 26.
