However, clergy that have NOT received a personal summons to concelebrate are requested to pray in the nave of the cathedral together with the faithful. After the “Holy Things are for the Holy,” they are to enter the Holy Altar already vested in stole and cuffs (without phelonion) and commune according to rank. Use gold vestments.
