I'm being chrismated tomorrow.  Father told me to come up without shoes on after the homily.  I forgot to ask him: what color socks should I wear.  I plan on wearing dress (dark) socks tomorrow.  Will this be ok?  Thanks

Well, I would think that you'd want to have no socks on, the chrism will be placed on your feet since it is you who will be chrismated, not your socks; but ultimately, every priest will have his own practice, he may or may not want you to remove your socks. As for the type of socks, I don't think it's that big of a deal, whatever you feel comfortable in.

It's common in our parish to wear sandals on the day of your chrismation. Of course I do live in Florida. Wink

Congratulations and many years!

Heck, I guess I misunderstood the instructions of my priest and godfathers, because I went up to be chrismated barefoot. Grin

Actually, that's a common practice in my parish. I was chrismated along with about a dozen others, and none of us had shoes.

Adamites!

Or maybe, more appropriate: Mosaics! (remember the burning bush?).

The Copts never wear shoes in the sanctuary (I think the same for the Ethiopians).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

StGeorge,

So...did you wear socks? If so, what color?
