Chrism Mass to be celebrated at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral on April 12

The archdiocese’s annual Chrism Mass will be celebrated at 2 p.m. on April 12, Tuesday of Holy Week, at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis.

The Mass is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend. Doors open at 1 p.m.

Ordinarily celebrated yearly during Holy Week, the chrism Mass features priests renewing their ordination promises and the blessing of oils used for the celebration of several sacraments and the dedication of altars and churches. The oils are distributed to representatives from each parish taking part in the liturgy, who take them back to their faith communities across central and southern Indiana.

The liturgy will be livestreamed at www.archindy.org/streaming. †
