Chrism Mass


Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio was joined by about 250 priests of the diocese for the annual Chrism Mass at St. James Cathedral-Basilica, Downtown Brooklyn. During the liturgy, the priests and deacons renewed their religious promises, and the bishop blessed the holy oils that will be used to administer the sacraments in all of the parishes in Brooklyn and Queens for the next year. Concelebrants included priests who will celebrate significant anniversaries of their priesthood this year.
