Everyone Is Invited!

The public is invited to attend the Mass of Chrism here at 10:30 am on Wednesday, April 12. During this special Mass, the priests of the Diocese of Baton Rouge concelebrate with Bishop Robert Muench, and renew their promises of priestly service to the Lord and to His holy Church. The bishop then blesses the Oil of Catechumens and the Oil of the Sick, and consecrates the Sacred Chrism, for use in the diocese throughout the coming year!
