Bishop Barres

Here is the version of the coat of arms of Bp. John O. Barres of Rockville Centre, NY published by the diocese.

Hmmmmm…as one correspondent has already pointed out the blazon says that the bishop’s personal arms have a field that is “barry of six” yet seven are depicted here. In addition, the arms of the See are blazoned as having a bordure wavy but that is barely discernible.

    I designed Bishop Barres’ personal arms. Indeed, there should be six bars and not seven. I do not know who designed this new rendition as Bishop of Rockville Centre, but I agree that they are very poorly drafted.
