Chrism Mass Livestream
On Tuesday, March 30, 2021 the Chrism Mass will be livestream from St. Patrick Cathedral on the front page of the Diocesan Website, starting at 6:00 p.m.
Note: The Chrism Mass will only be open to Priests, Seminarians, and Deacons. The faithful are asked to participate via the livestream on the front of Diocesan website (under the image slider).
During the Chrism Mass, the bishop blesses the sacramental oils used throughout the year in every parish in the diocese, and the priests of the diocese renew their promises to the priesthood. Although the service can be overshadowed by the Triduum, the blessed oils play an essential role in bestowing grace in sacramental rites, and the Mass itself reveals the unity of the worldwide Church.
