Archdiocesan priests joined Cardinal George in renewing their priestly vows during the Chrism Mass at Holy Name Cathedral on March 18. During that Mass the oils used in the sacraments during the year were also blessed. Chrism oil is used in baptism, confirmation, ordinations and during the dedication of churches. The other two holy oils are used in the anointing of the sick and for catechumens.
