They are worn every Sunday in my church.

Also, when a woman is one of the sacred monsters or the M.C., or seated in choir, she, of course, wears a biretta.

Turns out the Senior Pastor is a Stagger's grad... how intriguing.

Best typo ever. Now I want to see a D&D module with a temple served by sacred monsters. With birettas.

Each MCC pastor is a law unto him/herself -- he is also wearing a fiddleback chasuble.

Note, too, the maniple. The lace, however, shows some Protestant restraint.

Birettas were a one-time fixture at Ascension & St Agnes but now mostly dispensed with as far as I can tell.

Type "birettas for sale near me" into google and you will find more than you will ever need to know. For colour, plain black unless you are a canon, archdeacon, or dean (in which case you get a coloured pompon); purple if you are a bishop and, should you be a cardinal (I make no assumptions on the identities of other shipmates), the appropriate scarlet.... Some religious orders have their own colours, a complicated topic worthy of its own study and, for the less conventional, there is at least one set of tartan birettas in existence.

In terms of the MCC, there may be a biretta code of which I am not aware.

I believe you will also find certain doctorates entitle one to a coloured pom too - e.g. green for Canon Law, as I recall.

I touched on this earlier on and also made reference to the FOUR wings (as opposed to THREE) for a doctor's biretta.
