Deacons

Deacons wear a white dress (kutino) and an uroro ‘stole’ in various shapes according to their rank.

  1. Singers (mzamrono) wear the kutino without the uroro.
  2. Readers (qoruyo) wear the uroro in the form of a Cross.
  3. Subdeacons (apodyaqno) wear the uroro folded around the neck.
  4. Deacons (shamosho) wear the uroro over the left shoulder, on either side like wings.
  5. Archdeacons (archedyaqno) wear the uroro round the neck. They also wear a zenoro and zende similar to priests.
