Chrism Mass 2017 Diocese of Leeds
As usual on the Wednesday morning of Holy Week clergy, religious and laypeople from across the diocese of Leeds gathered in St Anne’s Cathedral for the annual Chrism Mass.
During the Mass, Bishop Marcus blessed the Oil of the Sick and the Oil of Catechumens and consecrated the Sacred Chrism for use in the parishes of the diocese during the coming year.
Renewal of Ordination Vows
The Chrism Mass also provides an opportunity for the priests of the diocese to renew the vows they first made at their ordination. As a group of ministers gathered with members of the faithful of the diocese they make their public commitment to the service of God, the Church and its people once more. The people, in turn, offer their prayerful support of their priests.
