The annual Chrism Mass will happen this year on March 20 at St. Luke’s in the Meadow in Fort Worth.
This service has also been called a Mass of Collegiality. At this annual service, clergy members reaffirm their ordination vows and receive a blessing, and new oil (chrism) is blessed for the coming year’s needs.
Priests use different types of oil when anointing people for healing, or near death, or when anointing those who have just been baptised or confirmed.
A luncheon will follow the service.
