The annual Chrism Mass was held April 3 at Rochester's Sacred Heart Cathedral. Bishop Matthew H. Clark presided, blessing the Oil of the Sick and the Oil of Catechumens and consecrating the Sacred Chrism, all of which will be used by parishes throughout the diocese during the coming year. The Mass also featured special musical performances, liturgical dance and a renewal of commitment to service by diocesan priests in attendance.
