Diocese of Prince Albert Chrism Mass 2017

“We Are All Consecrated to Serve”, was the theme for the Diocese of Prince Albert Chrism Mass that was held at the Sacred Heart Cathedral on Saturday, April 8, 2017. Most Rev. Albert Thévenot M.Afr. , Bishop of Prince Albert, presided at the Mass with diocesan parish priests concelebrating. Chrism Mass is the celebration of the blessing of the oils that are used throughout the year at the parishes. There are three oils that are blessed: the ‘Oil of the Sick’ is used for anointing in times of illness, the ‘Oil of the Catechumens’ is used for anointing in the Sacrament of Baptism, and the ‘Oil of the Chrism’ is used to anoint at Baptisms, Confirmations and Ordinations. A sweet perfume is added to the Oil of Chrism as a sign of the sweet joy we have in Christ. Bishop Thévenot, in his address to the faithful, asked those gathered to mark the sign of the cross on their forehead as a reminder that all are anointed priest, prophet and king; therefore, all are called to be servants to their families, their neighbours and their communities. “Be sealed with the Holy Spirit, is what is said at our confirmation. We are all called to be sealed with the spirit of love, the spirit of forgiveness and the spirit of spreading the Good News to all in our world. We are all called to announce the truth, and the truth is Christ”. Bishop Thévenot also challenged the clergy to “recognize their sheep” and to be with them during their times of sorrow and joy. During the Chrism mass celebration, the clergy of the diocese participate in the annual ‘Renewal of Commitment to Priestly Service’.

The Mass celebration concluded with the commissioning of the Fire Mission Group. This group is composed of a number of local youth who go out to visit homes in Prince Albert, inviting all to the various Triduum and Easter Mass celebrations that are held in the city. They also take the time to pray with those they visit, if requested, and to solicit prayer requests.

After the celebration, all were invited to gather at St. Mary High School for continued fellowship and for refreshments.
