On Holy Thursday morning, April the 18th, the priests of the diocese will renew their commitment to priesthood and invite the people to pray for them at the Chrism Mass in the Cathedral at 10.00a.m.

This is the only Mass celebrated in the diocese in the morning. Lay people from every parish are invited to show support for and solidarity with Bishop Buckley and the priests as he blesses the oils. The Holy Oils blessed at this Mass are brought back to the parishes for use during the coming in the celebration of Baptism and Confirmation, to bring support and comfort to the sick in their infirmity and to anoint the hands of priests and heads of bishops at ordination.

All are welcome
