Chrism Mass

On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, Archbishop Broglio celebrated the annual Chrism Mass for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. The annual Mass, where His Excellency consecrates and blesses sacramental oils for use over the coming year, had to be moved from its usual location at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to the smaller confines of the Edwin Cardinal O’Brien Pastoral Center due to the coronavirus epidemic and a stay-at-home order and ban on gatherings of ten or more people now in effect in Washington, D.C.
