Chrism Mass

The Chrism Mass will take place at theĀ Cathedral of the Most Holy Redeemer and of the Immaculate Conception in Corner Brook on Wednesday, March 20 at 7pm.

The Chrism Mass is celebrated annually in the cathedral by the bishop and priests of a diocese in communion with their people. It is meant to publicly express the unity of the diocese, the unity of the priests and their bishop, and to celebrate the institution of the priesthood and priestly service. The blessing of Oil of Catechumens and the Oil of the Sick and the consecrating of Chrism for all of the diocese takes place at this Mass.
