You are most cordially invited to attend Chrism Mass, Tuesday, March 27, 2018. This diocesan celebration will be held at 7:00 pm at the Cathedral in St. Paul. Chrism Mass is concelebrated by the Bishop and the priests from all parts of the diocese. It is a sign of unity and communion between the priests and their Bishop. But, it is also a celebration that fosters the relationship between the Bishop and all members of his diocese: Priests, Deacons, Religious and the Faithful. All are welcome and most especially the representatives of the parishes, the parish and mission council members, the pastoral agents. the care workers, the parish visitors to the sick and shut-ins, the readers, the lectors, the ministers of communion, the members of the RCIA, the catechists, the youth and youth ministers, altar servers (who are requested to bring their albs and to participate in the procession) and those who minister to the altar servers. It is during this celebration that the Oil of the Catechumens and the Oil of the Sick are blessed and the Holy Chrism (the oil for ordinations and confirmations) is consecrated (hence the name of Chrism Mass). It is the celebration of the Risen Lord’s power of life active in the Church.
I am well aware that many are geographically far from St. Paul. Distance is a challenge here. But this is a once a year event. The diocesan family needs to gather once in a while. Cordial invitation to all! Hope to see you there!
A light lunch will be served immediately after the celebration at the St. Paul Senior Citizen Centre (4809-47 Street).
