Bishop Fintan Gavin celebrated the Chrism Mass in the Cathedral on Holy Thursday morning at 10am. This is the only Mass in the Diocese on Holy Thursday morning. This year the priests renewed their commitment to the priesthood online and Bishop Fintan asked invite people to pray for them.
The three oils which will be used in the celebration of the Sacraments in the diocese during the year were blessed by Bishop Fintan. These Holy Oils are the Oil of Catechumens (Baptism), Oil of Chrism and Oil of the Sick. These were blessed at this Mass and are distributed to the parishes of the diocese.
Let us pray for Bishop Fintan and the priests of the diocese who minister the sacraments in our parishes. We give thanks for their great service and we ask the Lord to bless, guide and protect them at all times.
