Parish Representatives for the Chrism Mass

Three representatives from each parish are requested to present the oils for blessing during the Chrism Mass on Tuesday, April 4, 2006, at 7:30p. They should be selected in advance for this responsibility and be seated in their reserved seats in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph by 7:00p.

It is recommended that those presenting the oils represent some link to the oil to be blessed, for example:

  • Oil of the Sick: A minister to the sick, elderly, or hospitalized; or a parishioner who was anointed in the last year.

  • Oil of Catechumens: A parish catechumenate team member; or a catechist working in baptismal preparation; or a catechumen.

  • Sacred Chrism: A neophyte initiated at last year’s Easter Vigil; or a candidate for Confirmation; or a catechist working in Confirmation preparation; or an "Elect" (adult preparing for Baptism at the Easter Vigil).

If you have any questions, please contact Diana Macalintal at 408-983-0136.
