No, they have no need for special robes or vestments, and neither do they have any sacred or symbolic objects that are used in worship.

Psalm 22:16-18 reads as follows: For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones.
