What is Chrism Mass

The Chrism Mass is where the bishop blesses three oils (usually olive oil); the oil of catechumens; the oil of the infirm; and holy chrism which is used in the sacraments throughout the diocese for the year. The symbolism of oil is used in healing, strengthening, beautification, dedication, consecration and sacrifice. The Oil of Catechumens is used in connection with the sacrament of baptism. The oil of the infirm is used in the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. In the sacrament of confirmation, the bishop anoints the forehead of the candidate with chrism saying, “Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Sacred chrism is also used in the sacrament of holy orders and finally, holy chrism is used in the dedication ceremony of a church.
