2022 Chrism Masses around the Province

On April 12, 2022, all could virtually participate in the 4:30 p.m. Archdiocese of Atlanta Chrism Mass, in Atlanta’s Cathedral of Christ the King, as Archbishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. (a friar of our province), blessed the oil of the sick, the oil of catechumens and consecrates the oil of chrism to be used throughout the archdiocese for the year. Many of our friars serving in ministry in Atlanta were also be in attendance.

Many of our province friars serving in the Archdiocese of Baltimore were on hand for the April 11, 2022 Chrism Mass. In the April 12th Catholic Review online article, Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Dennis Grumsey, OFM Conv. who serves as pastor of the AOB Pastorate of St. Casimir Catholic Church & St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church is featured (see insert at left). Watch the video of the Mass and you will see several more of our friars, including Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv. (Vicar Provincial) and Fr. Donald Grzymski, OFM Conv. (President of Archbishop Curley High School) seated behind the ambo.
