The 2024 Archdiocese of St. John’s Chrism Mass: Tues. March 26th at 7:00 p.m.

The Mass of Chrism is one of the most solemn and important diocesan celebrations of the liturgical year.  The Mass is a celebration of the institution of the ministerial priesthood and is a sign of the unity and communion of the Priests with their Bishop.  The Mass takes its name from the blessing of the Holy Oils used in the sacraments throughout the year, which are then given to the priests to take back to their parishes.

The 2024 Chrism Mass will be celebrated at the Basilica-Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Tuesday March 26th at 7:00 p.m.   All are welcome to attend this celebration and it will be live-streamed at www.thebasilica.net and at www.thebasilica.church).
