Catholic Custom: Prelatial Cuffs

So as to not be damaged when the alb is laundered they are often detachable (i.e. with snap buttons).


  1. I just had Mons. Schuler's cuffs donated to Mons. Frank Chiodo of the Diocese of Des Moines. He is a worthy recipient. I believe it is of the same style.

    You can see them in the picture that I emailed you....

  2. Am I right to understand that a priest would wear black cuffs in his alb while a Bishop wears red ones? Also, what does a Monsignor wear?
