Parishioners from across Southeast Texas packed St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica, Beaumont, March 22 for the Chrism Mass.

Priests from throughout the diocese joined Bishop Curtis Guillory, SVD, as he consecrated the Sacred Chrism and blessed the Oil of the Sick and the Oil of the Catechumens. The oils are distributed to all of the parishes to be used throughout the year.

The priests in attendance of the Chrism Mass also renewed their priestly promises.
