Chrism Mass

 

Listen to homily by Bishop Seamus:

 

On Holy Thursday morning Bishop Seamus and the priests of the diocese gathered at the Cathedral to celebrate the annual Chrism Mass. During this liturgy the priests of the diocese renewed their priestly commitment and the bishop blessed the sacred oils - Oil of the Sick, Oil of Catechumens and Oil of Chrism. These oils are to be used in the Sacraments for the coming year.
