Cork, Cloyne and Ross Annual Chrism Eucharist held in St Fachtna’s Cathedral, Rosscarbery

The annual Chrism Eucharist in Cork, Cloyne and Ross was held again this year on Maundy Thursday at Noon in Saint Fachtna’s Cathedral, Rosscarbery, County Cork. People from all over the diocese gathered yesterday to celebrate together, to renew their commitment to their ministry, and for the blessing of the oils used in the pastoral and sacramental aspects of their ministry in the coming year.

Following the celebration of the Eucharist everyone enjoyed a light lunch in the narthex of the Cathedral which was prepared and served by parishioners of Ross Union, before heading back to their own places to begin the most solemn three days – known as the Triduum – in the Church’s calendar.
