In preparation for the Chrism Mass on Tuesday, April 4, 2006, 7:30p at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, please be sure that your parish oil vessels are undamaged, properly cleaned, and delivered to the Office of Pastoral Ministry in the carrying boxes in which they were presented last year.

Empty oil vessels may be delivered in one of two ways:

  1. They can be brought to the Office of Pastoral Ministry, 900 Lafayette Street, Suite 405, Santa Clara by noon on Monday, March 20, or,
  2. Arrangements have been made for a one-time courier pick-up of the vessels. The service that picks up the ADA collections will bring parish vessels to the Office of Pastoral Ministry on Tuesday, March 14 if you have asked for an ADA pickup. The vessels must be in the carrying box with the parish name clearly visible and must be with the ADA materials. The courier will not ask if there are vessels for delivery. Please note this service is only available on Tuesday, March 14.
