Chasuble: A chasuble is a piece of clothing worn by the priest when leading worship that includes Holy Eucharist. It is roughly a circle with a head hole. It is worn over a stole (a scarf-like piece of fabrice) and an alb (a long white robe). The stole and chasuble are usually the same colour and are often designed to be worn together.
