The Chrism Mass is traditionally held during Holy Week and is a significant moment in the life of the local church.

At the Mass, the people of God come together as priests renew their priestly promises and the local bishop blesses and consecrates the sacred oils used in the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick, and Holy Orders. These oils are then distributed and used in every parish in the archdiocese, signifying the Lord's healing presence and the life-giving gift of the Holy Spirit among the people.
