The Chrism Mass is the most important Diocesan celebration where the Bishop, clergy, religious and laity gather to celebrate the sacramental life.
Bishop Peter said: “I would ask that we gather in a spirit of solidarity to express our Diocesan identity and to reiterate our commitment to the mission of evangelisation.”
During the Mass, the Sacred Chrism is consecrated and the Oil of Catechumens and the Oil of the Sick are blessed. These are the oils that are then distributed from the Mother Church of the Cathedral for use in every parish community.
