Chrism Mass 2018

One of the significant times the bishop gathers with his priests, deacons, and diocese is at the Chrism Mass. This yearly gathering of the church provides an opportunity for the diocesan community to focus on the Word and the Eucharist, while at the same blessing the oils, which are used in parish ministries throughout the year. The Chrism mass will be held at St. Joseph Cathedral at 10:30 am on Wednesday March 28, 2018. The diocese invites all parishioners to the Chrism Mass.
