Chrism Mass 2018

'The two main parts of the Chrism Mass are as follows - The priests of the Archdiocese renews their priestly commitment and obedience to the Archbishop - as their chief pastor and shepherd. 

The Holy Oils that will be used for the celebration of the Sacraments throughout the year are blessed at this Mass. They are the Oll of the Sick, the Oil of Catechumens and the Oil of Chrism. 

Archbishop Peter Loy Chong explained this in his homily. He also spoke about the alarming rise of sexual violence and rape suffered by women and girls here in Fiji. His last pastoral letter in March was dedicated to facts and figures pertaining to this issue where he challenged the church and its members to respond appropriately'.
