Chrism Mass

What is a Chrism Mass?

Chrism Mass services, held traditionally in Holy Week, are times when the oils for use in pastoral care are presented and blessed – the oils of baptism, healing and the catechumenate. This is also a time for the Renewal of Vocation – a renewal of baptismal, ordination and consecration vows.

Each Chrism Mass will begin at 10:30 am, and lunch will be served following the service.
