Chrism Mass 2017

On Holy Thursday, April 13, at St Mary Cathedral, Lansing, Bishop Boyea consecrated the holy oils used in parishes throughout the year.  Three different oils were blessed:  the Oil of the Sick; the Oil of Catechumens (converts to the Catholic faith); and the Sacred Chrism used for anointing during the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy orders (ordination of priests). Also during this Mass the priests of the Diocese of Lansing renew the priestly promises made at their ordination.
