Chrism Mass

The Annual Chrism Mass will take place on Wednesday 17th April at 7.30pm in St John’s Cathedral.

Bishop Brendan warmly invites parishioners from across the Diocese to join him for this Mass.

The Chrism Mass is the great annual gathering of the Diocese – lay faithful, religious, priests and Bishop, all gathered in the one Eucharist. Everyone renews their baptismal promises and the priests renew the promises made at Ordination. The sacred oils are blessed. It is always a joyful, moving ceremony of the People of God united with one another around the Bishop.

St. Ambrose commented that every Catholic should try and attend the Chrism Mass at least once in their life. Many attend each year. It is always a beautiful ceremony. It is a celebration that celebrates our Diocesan identity, encouraging one another, thanking God for the gifts of the sacraments and the gift of priestly ministry and a chance to renew our Christian identity as we move into the celebration of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday

The Chrism Mass will also be streamed live. You can view it at https://www.churchservices.tv/limerickcathedral
