Ever wonder what the three glass decanters are on the shelves outside the Reconciliation Room by the Baptismal Font? These are the Sacred Oils used in the Rites for the Sacraments of Baptism & Confirmation (Sacred Chrism & the Oil of  Catechumens), and the Anointing of the Sick.

This year Golie Ebrahimian, our Electwill receive the Oil of Catechumens from Bishop Kopacz at the Chrism Mass this Tuesday. The reception of the Sacred Oils by representatives of the diocesan parishes is a sign of each parish’s unity with the Bishop and the diocesan Church

Please pray for our Elect, Golie Ebrahimian, and Candidates Brian Rentfro, David Jackson, Robert Martinez, Heather Strahan and Robert Martinez as the enter into full communion at the Easter Vigil.
