Annual Chrism Mass
In the Anglican Church, the Chrism Mass is a special service held during Holy Week. This service is also sometimes called the “Mass of the Holy Oils” or the “Mass of the Chrism.”
During the Chrism Mass, the bishop blesses three types of oil: oil of the catechumens, oil of the sick, and holy chrism. These oils will be used throughout the year for various sacraments, such as baptism, confirmation, anointing of the sick, and ordination.
The Chrism Mass is an important event for clergy and laity alike, as it is a symbol of unity and renewal within the Church. It also serves as a reminder of the sacramental nature of the Church and its mission to spread the Good News to all people.
