Archives Chrism Mass to be held Friday with livestream

June 17, 2020

OGDENSBURG – Dioceses typically celebrate a Chrism Mass late in Lent. At this special Mass, Holy Oils are blessed by the bishop and distributed to all the parishes of the diocese.

Also, at the Chrism Mass, the bishop leads the priests in the renewal of their priestly promises of celibacy, prayer for the Church and obedience to their bishop.

The Diocese of Ogdensburg could not hold the Chrism Mass as usual on the Thursday prior to Holy Thursday due the pandemic.

Bishop Terry R. LaValley and the priests of the diocese will celebrate the Chrism Mass on Friday, June 19 at 2 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Ogdensburg.

Normally the Chrism Mass is open to all. Unfortunately, the lay faithful cannot attend due to limited seating to prevent spreading the Coronavirus.

All are invited others to pray for our diocese, bishop, and especially the sanctification of our priests on the most appropriate day, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

You can also participate via livestream at https://www.rcdony.org/livemass. The program including prayers and music will soon be available for download at that link.
