Chrism Mass

Archdiocesan Celebration

A reminder that the Chrism Mass will be celebrated at St Christopher’s Cathedral commencing Holy Week, on Monday, 26 March at 7:30 pm. There will be an hour of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the Cathedral at 4:00 pm, followed by dinner for clergy and seminarians, commencing at 5:30 pm at the Southern Cross Yacht Club, in the Marquee, Mariner Place, Yarralumla

I take this opportunity to encourage you to invite your parishioners to attend the Chrism Mass.  It is one of the high points of Holy Week, and a large representation of lay people from all parishes would be wonderful. A suggested parish bulletin notice is included below.

Parish priests are reminded to bring the Holy Oils bottles, emptied and washed to the Haydon Hall on Monday, 26 March from 2:00 pm and collect 2018 Holy Oils bottles before 9:30 pm that evening.

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Archbishop Christopher Prowse

RSVP by Friday, 16 March.
