Chrism Mass

the Inland Register

(From the April 12, 2007 edition of the Inland Register)

Bishop Skylstad celebrated the Chrism Mass on the morning of Holy Thursday, April 5. During the Mass, the priests of the diocese recommit themselves to their ministry, renewing their own “dedication to Christ as priests of his new covenant.” The bishop also blesses the sacramental oils during the Mass: the Oil of the Sick, the Sacred Chrism, and (shown above) the Oil of Catechumens. The oils are taken back to the parishes of the diocese for use throughout the coming year. (IR photo by Deacon Eric Meisfjord)
