Christ the King
A Catholic Community of the Diocese of San Diego
WELCOME TO CHRIST THE KING
First of all, I would like to thank Michael and Cheryl Blackwell for attending the Chrism Mass and picking up our blessed oils. It is during the Chrism Mass each year that the bishop blesses the Oil of the Catechumen, the Oil of the Sick and the Sacred Chrism. The Chrism Mass is usually the largest annual gathering of priests and faithful, it is a mass where the priests are invited to renew the commitments they made at their ordination. These are the blessed oils that are used by the parishes in Baptism, confirmation, ordinations and the anointing of the sick. This year’s Chrism Mass took place at Good Shepherd Catholic Church San Diego.
Our Lenten Journey continues…
Last Sunday at the beginning of the Mass of the Lord’s Passion, during the short homily outside before we started the procession, I clapped my hands and shouted loudly attention! Attention and after doing this a few times I had everyone’s attention. Then I told them to take time during this Holy week to stay focused and not be distracted. There are so many worldly distractions going on that we may not be able to focus on and celebrate. We Catholics know how to Party! We have the Triduum: Here are the liturgical services that take place during the Triduum:
Remember that there will be no morning masses on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.
