I was wondering what is the usage of robes in your church. In my church, the minister wears a white baptismal gown while baptizing people, as do the people being baptized. During the non-baptismal parts of the service, the preacher wears a regular suit and tie. Normally an assistant pastor baptizes people. So while my pastor doesn't wear a robe during the service, I do. That's because I'm in the Chancel Choir. We got new robes today. We wear black robes with a blue and white pennant stole, and, for the men, a white cutaway shirt collar, unless we're already wearing a white shirt. The old robes were tattered and at least fifteen years old. I love dressing up in a long, flowing, choir robe for church. They really look nice. Of course, on Sunday mornings I wear a suit to Sunday School and hang up my jacket in the robing room before the service. One time in high school I was on our mock trial team and I got to wear a judicial robe because I was being a fake judge. So, what do you do in your church? Are there any churches represented on here where the pastor wears a pulpit robe. I know such Baptist churches exist.
