The annual Chrism Mass will be held at Saint Matthew Cathedral in South Bend on Tuesday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades has invited all priests, sisters, brothers, deacons and lay people of the diocese to attend either of these Masses. An interpreter will be present for those who are hearing impaired or deaf.

At the Chrism Mass, the Holy Chrism is consecrated and the oil of catechumens and oil of the sick are blessed. This beautiful Mass manifests the communion of the priests with their bishop in the same priesthood and ministry of Christ.
