On the Feast of Pentecost, on May 15, 2016 I was blessed to be invited to attend and photograph newly ordained priest, Father David Keegan's "Mass of Thanksgiving" . His first Mass as a newly ordained Roman Catholic Priest. 

The Mass was at Assumption Catholic Church in Jacksonville, Florida. My family has been blessed to know him since he entered the Seminary.  

One of the most moving moments was when he presented his mother and father with two special gifts. One was called a Maniturgium ;

MANITURGIUM: A fine linen cloth, often embroidered with fine lace or some insignia, used by a newly ordained priest after annointing with holy oils. It was removed from the Rite of Ordination but is often still used by the newly ordained when they return to the sacristy to clean their hands. This MANITURGIUM is then put aside by the priest to be used to place in the hands of his deceased mother before burial. Often two were used, one for each parent. ("The Church Visible" by James-Charles Noonan, Jr.)

Here is a slideshow documentary of the entire Mass .
