St Patrick’s Cathedral was today the venue for Archbishop Peter Comensoli to concelebrate his first annual Chrism Mass, or the Mass of the Holy Oils, inside Melbourne’s minor basilica. An integral element of Holy Week, the Mass sees the blessing of the oils that are used for anointing the newly baptised, to seal candidates for confirmation and those ordained to the priesthood.
