Chrism Mass for the Ordinariate
|Archbishop Menini entering and being welcomed into the Church.|
The Mass of Holy Chrism is when the Holy Oils administered in the Sacraments are blessed, and also when the clergy renew their vows as priests and deacons.
As always it was good to be with one's brothers in the clergy, to be supported by representatives of the laity whom we serve, and to concelebrate a wonderful solemn mass. The Mass setting was by Bruckner and included trombones, which was very splendid and fitting for the celebration.
Here are a few snaps I took after mass was over as people and clergy were milling around.
