Deacons stoles are worn over the alb. Unlike priests stoles, stoles for deacons are designed to be worn over the left shoulder and fastened at the waist on the right. The standard deacon stole design is a “bent elbow” style. Deacons wear their stoles under a dalmatic at Mass. The deacons stole and dalmatic match the liturgical color of the day and are available with a variety of ornamentation. Stoles make wonderful gifts for newly-ordained deacons.
Here at Aquinas and More, we pledge that our stoles and other liturgical vestments are high-quality garments made in the USA, Poland, Italy or Great Britain. We never carry stoles made in China.
