Chrism Mass

A congregation, drawn from the parishes of the diocese, joined Bishop Brendan and our Diocesan Priests for the Chrism Mass.  It was a prayerful celebration during which Bishop Brendan reminded priests of their call to be people of prayer.  He blessed the Oils of The Sick and Baptism and consecrated the Sacred Chrism.  This is a very special gathering in the diocese, as indeed it is in all dioceses,with the gathering of the clergy to recall the origins of priesthood and the bringing of the Blessed Oils to the parishes of the diocese to be used in the administration of the Sacraments in the coming year.
