Chrism Mass livestreamed on Facebook
06 April 2020 IN: Ministers
Clergy, licensed lay workers and Church Army evangelists joined together in the service of Renewal of Vows and the Blessing of Oils livestreamed from three locations on Monday 6 April.
It is our tradition to meet in Manchester Cathedral for the annual Chrism Mass on Holy Monday, but because of the coronavirus pandemic we were unable to leave our homes this year. But clergy and lay ministers could still join our bishops for the service of Renewal of Vows and the Blessing of Oils. Bishop David live-streamed a service from the Bishopscourt Chapel, together with the Archdeacon of Bolton and Cathedral curate..
The service included the Renewal of Vows. As well as clergy, Church Army evangelists, licensed lay-workers and Readers had the opportunity, as usual, to recommit themselves.
You can watch the service (in three parts) on the diocesan Facebook page.
