The units of the Walsingham Guard all use the same service and full dress uniforms. Some units have additional ceremonial uniforms. Uniforms are an outward expression of calling and purpose - an indication of the role of service that each member of the Guard has. Although there are 12 uniform orders, in addition to full dress and the ceremonial dress uniform that some units have, members of the Guard are only required to have those uniforms that are indicated for their specific role. For clergy serving within the Guard, the Walsingham Guard uniform, as a "military habit of the Cross," is considered a clerical habit that may be worn in place of the clergy suit, abito corto, or the cassock, except where the cassock is mandated by canon law, norms, or directives. Full Dress, No. 1, No. 2, No. 4, and No. 6 Dress may be worn in place of the cassock by clergy when attending liturgy as appropriate, but not when sitting in choir.
