The Mass of Holy Chrism will be celebrated Tuesday, March 26 at 10:30 a.m. in St. Paul Cathedral.

The Chrism Mass gathers the diocesan family to celebrate the unity of all persons who have been anointed with the Holy Chrism at baptism, confirmation and holy orders. Bishop McManus will bless the holy oils to be used in  our parishes and diocesan liturgies in the coming year.

During the Mass, the priests of the diocese will renew their commitment to service in the Church. In a special was, we will honor those priests who are celebrating their 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th anniversaries of priestly ordination and service to Church of Worcester.
