All parishioners are invited to attend the liturgy, which unites the 110 parishes of the archdiocese. During the celebration, Archbishop Shelton J. Fabre will bless the holy oils and consecrated the sacred Chrism that will be used by parishes in the coming year for the dedication of new churches and altars and in the sacraments of anointing the sick, confirmation, baptism and ordination.

The priests of the archdiocese who attend the celebration also are invited to renew the promises of priesthood, pledging to work together to shepherd and serve the people of the archdiocese.
