The 2021 Archdiocese of St. John’s Chrism Mass

By | Announcements | No Comments

The Mass of Chrism is one of the most solemn and important diocesan celebrations of the liturgical year.  The Mass is a celebration of the institution of the ministerial priesthood and is a sign of the unity and communion of the Priests with their Bishop.  The Mass takes its name from the blessing of the Holy Oils used in the sacraments throughout the year, which are then given to the priests to take back to their parishes.

Usually, the Chrism Mass is celebrated near the end of Lent, just before the celebration of the Sacred Triduum, and people from all the parishes of the Archdiocese are invited to attend.  This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Chrism Mass was postponed.

In consultation with the Archdiocesan Presbyteral Council, the 2021 Chrism Mass is now scheduled to be celebrated at the Basilica-Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Wednesday, May 19th at 11:00 a.m.

People wishing to attend the celebration are asked to please register by phone at 709-754-2170 or by email at  People may also participate virtually and spiritually either via live stream on the Basilica Heritage Foundation website ( or the Basilica Parish website ( or by viewing the celebration when it is posted on the Archdiocese’s website (
