The Chrism Eucharist

The Chrism Eucharist will take place this year in Chichester Cathedral on Tuesday 27 March at 12.00 noon. 

Please note the start time, which is the same as last year and which should allow a little more time for those travelling from a distance.

The Chrism Eucharist is an occasion for the blessing of the oils of baptism, of the sick, and of chrism but it is also an opportunity for clergy to renew their ordination promises before Easter and to commit ourselves afresh to our ministries.

Clergy are invited to robe as usual in the Bishop’s Kitchen. The guidance for vesture is alb and white stole, but it is acceptable to wear surplice and stole or choir dress if that is your tradition.
