The epitrachelion (in Greek it means "around the neck") is a liturgical vestment worn by priests and bishops of the Orthodox Church and Eastern Catholic Churches as the symbol of their priesthood. In effect it is a development of the Orarion, doubled with both ends handing in front and reaching the full length of the tunic or Sticharion.
"...Yesterday we had the altar candles blessed and I was able to take some pictures. I must say that they compliment the rest of our furnishings. Thank you again for all your kind assistance. God Bless!..."
