Paraments are the linens and cloth hangings used on communion tables, altars, pulpits and lecterns. The colors of the paraments reflect the traditional colors of the seasons of the Christian year and are changed as the seasons change. Often they are embellished with specific symbols appropriate to the Christian season.
In the Christian era, the art of embroidery as applied to church decoration is traced to Helen, the mother of the first Christian emperor.
In the seventh century, the art of embroidery was cultivated in the British Isles with much success. More than a thousand years ago, the clerics of St. Gallen, a little town in Eastern Switzerland, cultivated this art as they did other arts to the glory of God.
