Chrism Mass
All the priests of the Catholic Diocese of Brownsville will gather for the Chrism Mass along with Bishop Daniel E. Flores during Holy Week on Tuesday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle-National Shrine in San Juan.

The Chrism Mass is a celebration of the priesthood of Jesus Christ. It commemorates the institution of the priestly office at the Last Supper when the Lord told his disciples “Do this in memory of me.” During the celebration, the Bishop and the priests renew their commitment to priestly service. It is also a time that the Bishop will consecrate the Chrism and will bless the other sacred oils used by the Catholic Church during the year.
