The annual Diocesan gathering for the celebration of the Mass of Chrism and Renewal of Priestly Vows will take place tomorrow – Wednesday 28 March – at 11.30am at St. David’s Cathedral.
Following the Mass, the Holy Oils of the Sick, Baptism and Chrism are taken to the parishes of the Diocese to be used throughout the year. This gesture, and many others, expresses the unity of the people and clergy of the Diocese with the Bishop. The Roman Missal describes this Mass as “…. a manifestation of the Priests Communion with their bishop”.
There is always a large congregation at this beautiful occasion. It is good to arrive early to ensure a seat. Coffee will be served in the Jane Hodge Hall at The Cornerstone following the Mass.
