As part of Holy Week,  The Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach, will celebrate the traditional Catholic Chrism Mass. It is not open to the public. It will be live streamed.

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.
