MADISON -- In a sign that Easter was only a few days away, St. Maria Goretti Church in Madison was filled with people the evening of April 15 for the annual Chrism Mass.

At this Mass, the bishop blessed the Sacred Oils, which are used in administration of sacraments in parishes throughout the diocese in the coming year. Priests of the Diocese of Madison also renewed their commitment to priestly service.

The Madison Diocesan Choir began the evening with a prelude, followed by the procession hymn with the antiphon “Lord you have given my heart greater joy than at a harvest of wheat, wine, and oil.”

The procession was led by the Knights and Ladies of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, along with the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard from Assembly 1200 Madison.

Mass servers -- diocesan seminarians and Cathedral Parish servers -- deacons of the diocese, along with concelebrating priests then processed in with Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison.

Bishop Morlino welcomed everyone to the Chrism Mass and thanked them for “coming to pray hard.”
