Holy Week 2018

We take a visual journey through Holy Week 2018 in the Archdiocese of Chicago
Cardinal Cupich was the main celebrant and homilist at the Chrism Mass at Holy Name Cathedral on March 27. During this Mass, the oil of catechumens, the oil of the sick and the oil of chrism for use in parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago were blessed. These oils are accepted by representatives of each parish in the archdiocese and used for adult catechumens and infants, for Anointing of the Sick, for Baptism, for Confirmation, for the Ordination of priests and for the consecration of altars throughout the year.
