Chrism Mass April 10 2017

At this Mass Bishop Malooly blessed the three oils which are used in the year ahead throughout our diocese in the administration of sacraments.
Between the the doors at the main entrance to the Church you will see a small cabinet called an ambry.  This houses the vessels containing the three types of blessed oils.
1. Oil of the catechumen – used to bless and strengthen those preparing for baptism
2. Oil of the sick – used for annointing of the sick
3. Sacred Chrism – used at Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders
