Prep Campus Ministry Representatives attend Diocesan Chrism Mass 

Fairfield Prep attended the annual Chrism Mass for the Diocese of Bridgeport on April 4. Bishop Lori was the Principal Celebrant and Homilist. It was also Bishop Lori’s final Chrism Mass before heading to the Archdiocese of Baltimore. He has been appointed Archbishop-designate by Pope Benedict XVI and will be installed on May 16.

The Chrism Mass is held during Holy Week in every Catholic diocese. During this Mass, the priests, deacons and representatives of the entire diocesan community gather around their Bishop, who blesses the Holy Oils for use in the coming year. These are:

  • Oil of the Sick
  • Oil of Catechumens
  • Sacred Chrism
