THIS ROBE IS THE PRINCIPLE VESTMENT OF GOOD FRIDAY. THE LILY IS THE SYMBOL OF CHRIST'S RESUERRECTION. THE BLACK COPE IS WORN ONLY ON GOOD FRIDAY. THE MANIPLE IS WORN OVER THE ARM, SYMBOL OF THE SERVANTS' TOWELL (SERVANT OF GOD) THE STOLE IS WORN UNDER THE CHASUBLE & ACROSS THE BREAST. FOLLOWING VATICAN II (1962) THE BLACK VESTMENTS WERE PUT ASIDE IN FAVOUR OF WHITE CHASUBLES AS A SIGN OF NEW LIFE. THESE ROBES WERE REPLACED BY SIMPLER, LESS ORNATE VESTMENTS CONSIDERED MORE APPROPRIATE TO AN ORDER THAT HAS TAKEN A VOW OF POVERTY. CHASUBLE MAY DATE TO 1920'S. OBLATES ACTIVE IN LETHBRIDGE AREA SINCE 1ST BAPTISM AT FORT HAMILTON BY FATHER SCOLLEN IN 1873. FATHER VAN TIGHEM CELEBRATED THE 1ST MASS IN 1884 IN COALBANKS.

History
COSTUMES WERE WORN BY THE YOUNGEST MEMBERS OF THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE LOCATED IN RAYMOND, ALBERTA. FOR AT LEAST FIFTY YEARS, CHILDREN DRESSED UP IN THE ELABORATE GARMENTS AS PART OF RELIGION’S ‘CHIGO’ OR YOUNG-CHILDREN CEREMONY. THE PROCESSIONAL EVENT REQUIRED THAT THE CHILDREN DRESS AS HEAVENLY BEINGS. BOYS WORE A STIFF HAT OF LACQUERED GAUZE CALLED AN ‘EBOSHI’ WHILE GIRLS WORE THE CROWN OF THE PHOENIX BIRD KNOWN AS A ‘TENKAN’. THE CEREMONY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE RAYMOND BUDDHIST TEMPLE EVERY FIVE YEARS, COMMENCING ON THE DATE OF THE TEMPLE’S DEDICATION (1929) AND ENDING ON ITS FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY IN 1979. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE PAPER LOTUS FLOWERS WERE MADE LOCALLY AND THE GARMENTS WERE IMPORTED FROM JAPAN. FOR ALMOST EIGHTY YEARS, THE TEMPLE SERVED THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF MANY AMONG SOUTHERN ALBERTA’S JAPANESE COMMUNITY. IT ACTED AS A CENTRE FOR TRADITIONAL BUDDHIST TEACHING AND JAPANESE CULTURE UNTIL ITS CLOSING IN 2006. THESE COSTUMES, IN ADDITION TO OTHER SPIRITUAL OBJECTS INCLUDING THE TEMPLE’S SHRINE, WERE DONATED TO THE GALT AS PART OF THE TEMPLE’S CLOSING AND EVENTUAL SALE. CEREMONY WHERE THIS COSTUME WAS LAST WORN WAS PERFORMED FOR THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE'S FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY IN 1979. PERFORMED FOR THE TEMPLE'S INAUGURATION, 10TH, 20TH, 25, 30, 35, 40...ETC EVERY 5TH YEAR. DONOR HAS PHOTOS OF COSTUMES BEING WORN DURING THE ANNIVERSARIES (SEE PERMANENT FILE). DONOR PRESUMES THAT THE MATERIAL DATES TO 1929 TO 1930. SEE P20070014000 FOR INFORMATION ON GIRLS CHIGO COSTUME AND P20030041001 FOR COMPLETE HISTORY ON BUDDHIST TEMPLE. ON APRIL 26, 2009 THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA, LOCATED IN LETHBRIDGE, WAS THE SITE OF AN O-CHIGO CHILDREN’S PARADE, HELD AS PART OF THE TEMPLE’S DEDICATION CEREMONY. VISUAL DOCUMENTATION OF O-CHIGO COSTUMES, REPRESENTING THE ONE DONATED, CAN BE FOUND IN THE GALT’S ARCHIVES, RELATED TO THE 2009 DEDICATION EVENT. ADDITIONALLY, O-CHIGO RELATED PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND RELATED TO THE HISTORY OF THE TABER BUDDHIST CHURCH IN THE GALT’S ARCHIVES. FINALLY, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE ROYAL ALBERTA MUSEUM IS IN POSSESSION OF HISTORIC 40S ERA FOOTAGE OF TEMPLE EVENTS, RELATED TO THE RAM’S COLLECTION OF A SHRINE FROM PICTURE BUTTE.

THIS CHIGO COSTUME WAS WORN BY SMALL GIRLS WHO PARTICIPATED IN A BUDDHIST CELEBRATION. IN JAPANESE, CHIGO TRANSLATES TO, “YOUNG CHILDREN.” THE TOP, TERMED A “KARIGINU” IN JAPANESE, HAS WIDE SLEEVES THAT ARE ONLY PARTIALLY CONNECTED AT THE SHOULDER TO THE REST OF THE TOP. ACCORDING TO PHOTOGRAPHS, BOYS AND GIRLS WOULD WEAR THE KARIGINU SUCH THAT THE ARMS DID NOT GO THROUGH THE SLEEVES. THE SKIRT, TERMED A “HAKAMA” IN JAPANESE, IS WORN OVERTOP THE KARIGINU. THE HAKANA IS ARRANGED SUCH THAT THE TIES ARE SITUATED ON THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE CHILD. IN ADDITION TO THE KARIGINU AND HAKANA, CHILDREN WORE CROWNS, HELD ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS, AND WORE THE MAKE-UP OF THE NOBILITY. THIS MAKE-UP, TERMED “KUGEMAYU” IN JAPANESE, CONSISTED OF TWO BLACK DOTS ON THE LOWER MIDDLE FOREHEAD. DURING IMPORTANT CELEBRATIONS, AN O’CHIGO PARADE WAS OFTEN HELD. CHILDREN, TYPICALLY 4 TO 10 YEARS OLD, WORE CHIGO COSTUMES. EITHER INSIDE THE CHURCH AROUND THE SHRINE OR OUTSIDE ALONG A STREET, THE MINISTER WALKED A SHORT DISTANCE WHILE RECITING SUTRA. FOLLOWING THE MINISTER SOMEONE TOSSED PAPER FLOWER PETALS. THE CHILDREN WALKED WHERE THE FLOWER PETALS FELL. IN 1961, REVERED KAWAMURA SR. LED A TOUR OF 55 BUDDHISTS AND NON-BUDDHISTS TO CELEBRATE THE 700TH MEMORIAL ANNIVERSARY OF SHINRAN SHONIN, THE FOUNDER OF SHIN BUDDHISM, AT THE MOTHER TEMPLE IN KYOTO, JAPAN. 50 O'CHIGO COSTUMES FOR BOYS AND GIRLS WERE PURCHASED AND GIVEN COLLECTIVELY TO THE BUDDHIST CHURCHES IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA AS A GIFT. IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS COSTUME REPRESENTS ONE OF THE GIFTED O'CHIGO COSTUMES. THIS CHIGO COSTUME WAS LAST WORN AT THE CALGARY BUDDHIST TEMPLE IN 2006 FOR A 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION. INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM MAKIO AND REYKO NISHIYAMA AND MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE BUDDHIST TEMPLE IN 2008, AND REVERED IZUMI IN 2009. FOR INFORMATION ON GIRL'S CROWN, SEE P20060018003.
