Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola

Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410

As part of Holy Week, all the faithful are invited to attend our yearly Chrism Mass to be held in our diocesan Cathedral. The Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach, will celebrate the traditional Catholic Chrism Mass with priests from the Catholic Diocese of Palm Beach.

During the Chrism Mass, Bishop Barbarito will bless the three oils that will be used for sacramental purposes during the next year throughout all of the diocese’s 53 churches and missions. In addition to the blessing, the priests will renew their vows and those with significant anniversaries of his Ordination to the Priesthood will be recognized.

Bishop Barbarito and the diocese congratulates the priests listed below on these milestone anniversaries of their ordination and thanks them for their dedication to their Catholic communities and to building God’s Church.
