The Diaconal Orarion is a long narrow strip of fabric that the Deacon wears on his left shoulder while its two ends hang one on the front and the other on the back. The word comes from the Latin "orare" which means "I pray" and symbolizes the wings of Angels.
The Deacon holds the front end with his right hand when praying. In "Our Father", the deacon wraps both ends of the Orarion on his back to have ease of movement during the Holy Communion that follows.
Our collection includes Diaconal Oraria of various colors and designs, all embroidered with intricate patterns of the Ecclesiastical tradition.
