Chrism Mass Invitation

Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer invites all to participate in the Mass of the Blessing of the Oils and the Consecration of the Chrism at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah.

The bishop celebrates the Chrism Mass annually to provide the holy oils for the celebration of the sacraments—the oil of the sick, the oil of catechumens and the sacred Chrism that will be used in the Sacrament of Confirmation as well as in the Baptism of children and the ordination of bishops and priests.

About 80 priests are expected to concelebrate and renew their commitments to priestly service during this Mass, which is one of the most solemn and significant liturgies of the church year.
