The Archdiocese of Cincinnati celebrated its annual Chrism Mass Tuesday, March 22 at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains as part of Holy Week.

At the Chrism Mass, Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr blessed the oils that will be used in baptisms, confirmations and anointing of the sick at all parishes of the archdiocese throughout the coming year.

The Serra Club of Cincinnati, part of an international missionary support organization, sponsored a Meal for the deans and priests who participated in the Chrism Mass. The reception was held in the Cathedral Undercroft following the Mass.
