Arundel Cathedral Chrism Mass

March 30, 2021

Priests from across our Diocese will gather at Arundel Cathedral to celebrate the Chrism Mass on Wednesday evening.

Bishop Richard will concelebrate the Chrism Mass with a number of priests from our Diocese on Wednesday 31st March at 6pm. The Bishop will consecrate the sacred Chrism and bless the other oils during the Mass. It is with the sacred Chrism consecrated by the Bishop that the newly baptised are anointed and those to be confirmed are signed. It is with the Oil of Catechumens that catechumens are prepared and disposed for Baptism. Finally it is with the Oil of the Sick that those who are ill are comforted in their infirmity.

The Mass will take place in accordance with present Covid-19 restrictions. If you would like to watch the service via the Cathedral livestream please click here.
