Deacon's Vestments
== Deacon's Vestments ==
The vestments of the deacon are the [[sticharion]], the [[orarion]], and the [[epimanikia]]. In some jurisdictions, the deacon's [[sticharion]] is still called by its older name of [[dalmaticon]].
All three degrees of major clergy wear the sticharion. The sticharion is a long-sleeved tunic that reaches all the way to the ground. It reminds the wearer that the [[grace]] of the Holy Spirit covers him as with a garment of salvation and joy. For deacons, the sticharion has wide sleeves and is made of a heavier fabric than that of the priest and bishop, who wear their sticharia under other vestments.
