The Chrism Mass is celebrated every year in every diocese. During this important preparatory liturgy for the Paschal Triduum, the Bishop blesses the Oil of Catechumens, the Oil of the Sick, and consecrates the Sacred Chrism.
Also at this liturgy, the priests of the diocese will renew their priestly promises before the bishop following the homily, which promises are then affirmed by the gathered assembly of the faithful in the name of all the faithful of the diocese.
