Bishop of London leads Chrism Eucharist at St Paul’s Cathedral

On Maundy Thursday, Bishop Sarah led the Chrism Eucharist at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Every year at the Chrism Eucharist on Maundy Thursday, there is an invitation issued to all bishops, clergy and LLMs to our Mother Church, St Paul’s Cathedral, to renew their ordination and licensing promises and their commitment to the Good News of Jesus Christ.

At this service, oils are blessed for use across the Diocese: the oil for the sick, anointing with the healing presence of Christ; the oil of baptism, anointing with the victory of Christ over sin and death to those He calls by name; the oil of chrism for anointing all who are baptized and confirmed with the sweet fragrance of Christ’s gospel.
