RE: CHRISM MASS (28 MARCH 2024)

Dear Reverend Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers, and Sisters,

Greetings of peace in the Lord!

This is to invite you to the celebration of Chrism Mass on Holy Thursday, 28 March 2024 at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Manila Cathedral). Morning Prayer will begin at 6:30 AM and the Mass will be at 7:00 AM.

Kindly be guided by the following reminders:

1. Priests’ entrance will be at the gate along Cabildo Street, in front of Laiko building. Vesting will be at the vestibule. Priests are requested to wear their alb or cassock.
2. After vesting, ushers will lead them to their seats. Jubilarians who will join the entrance procession will be requested to stay at the Christ the King Chapel.
3. The Cathedral will be open to all who wish to participate in this year’s Chrism Mass. There will be LED monitors and speakers outside the Cathedral for those who cannot be accommodated anymore inside the Cathedral.
4. The religious and all lay people will enter through the main door of the Manila Cathedral. The doors will open at 4:30 AM.
5. After the Mass, priests are requested to leave their vestments on their seats.
6. The Holy Oils may be collected as priests exit through the left transept doors. Only Oils for parishes, shrines, mission stations, and chaplaincies will be distributed. Personal supply of the Oils may be requested from the Manila Cathedral after Holy Week.

We request the priests to personally secure the said Oils. Representatives tasked to get the Oils should kindly present a Letter of Authorization signed by the parish priest, rector, or chaplain.

Be assured of our support and prayers for all your pastoral endeavors for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom.

Most sincerely in Christ,

FR. ISIDRO T. MARINAY
Chancellor
