Our Personal Prayer Stoles are not just for Seminarians, and certainly not just for Clergy.
They are a personal prayer garment for anyone who likes to create a sanctified personal prayer space – one they can take with them wherever they go. But because the design is so versatile, we’ve decided to offer the idea of “Seminarian” Prayer Stoles – not because Seminarians are more likely to be devout, but because we know from experience that Seminarians are frequently in need of prayer!
Our personal prayer stoles are about 60″ long by 4.25″ wide: small enough that they cannot be confused with a standard clergy Eucharistic stole, and can be quite portable – useful wherever you wish to pause for prayer. They are a smaller and less expensive version of our larger prayer shawls. They can be ordered in custom colors. Our “Seminarian” line, shown here, is certainly “unofficial,” not endorsed by any of the seminaries. But we have chosen colors suggested by each of the seminary seals. The association with any educational institution is ours alone, but you might like to have a Seminarian Prayer Stole whose colors suggest your school:
1 – VTS 2 – CDSP 3 – Berkeley 4 – General 5 – SSW 6 – EDS
7 – Bexley 8 – Seabury 9 – Trinity 10 – Nashota 11 – Sewanee
CORRECTION: Nashotah (no. 10) should be Gold, Blue, and Red. We’ll correct the picture soon.
Of course the Prayer Stoles above are not restricted to students or alumni of the various seminaries! If you see one you like, go ahead and order it.
And many folks are already using our Prayer Stoles in colors of their own choosing. Here are some:
