Oils Blessed, Clergy Renew Vows at Chrism Mass

For the first time since the start of the pandemic in 2020, the annual Chrism Mass drew a full congregation Tuesday of priests, deacons, nuns, seminarians, and laity. With no COVID restrictions, the Mass at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph was Bishop Brennan’s first time to celebrate the annual event in the Diocese of Brooklyn.
