Yesterday, our eighth grade students were in attendance as Bishop Parkes celebrated the Chrism Mass. According to Catholic Exchange,
“The Chrism Mass manifests the unity of the priests with their bishop. At this Mass the Bishop blesses three oils, the oil of the catechumens, the oil of the infirm and holy chrism. These oils will be used in the administration of the sacraments throughout the year.”
We are fortunate that our students are able to participate in such a unique liturgical experience.
