Religious Textiles

The Musée culturel du Mont-Carmel has an extensive collection of all original religious textiles from the former parish, including vestments, altar clothes, parish and funeral banners, and textiles relating to the liturgical calendar.

When the former church of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel was donated in 1984 its entire contents were also donated – a rare occurrence when churches are decommissioned. We have augmented our collection with textiles from other local parishes as well.

We are pleased to feature a selection from our collection.
