Chrism Mass to be celebrated at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral on March 30

The archdiocese’s annual chrism Mass will be celebrated at 2 p.m. on March 30, Tuesday of Holy Week, at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis.

Ordinarily celebrated yearly during Holy Week, the chrism Mass features priests renewing their ordination promises and the blessing of oils used for the celebration of several sacraments and the dedication of altars and churches.

At this time, because of limited seating capacity at the cathedral due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only priests and parish life coordinators serving in central and southern Indiana and a representative number of archdiocesan deacons, men and women religious and lay faithful are guaranteed a seat for the liturgy.

A limited number of seats for others interested in attending the Mass may become available in the coming days. Check next week’s issue of The Criterion or for updated seating information.
