Mass of Chrism

April 11, 20177:30 PM - 9:30 PMAdd to Calendar

Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki will celebrate Chrism Mass on Tuesday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. at St. John Cathedral.

This Mass, which the bishop concelebrates with his college presbyters and at which he consecrates the Holy Chrism and blesses the other oils, manifests the communion of the presbyters with their bishop.

The Holy Chrism consecrated by the bishop is used to anoint the newly baptized, to seal the candidates for confirmation, and to anoint the hands of presbyters and the heads of bishops at their ordination, as well as in the rites of anointing pertaining to the dedication of churches and altars. The oil of catechumens is used in the preparation of the catechumens for their baptism. The oil of the sick is used to bring comfort and support to the sick in their infirmity.
