Access to the Chrism Mass

Having each parish and organization present to receive their Holy Oils is of the utmost importance. We would love to see anyone interested be able to attend, however, the limited seating capacity of St. Francis Xavier Cathedral forces us to restrict the number of individuals allowed into the Mass. Each parish and organization is offered two tickets for the delegates of their choosing to accept the Oils. Two tickets are reserved for each deacon and two for the appointed pastoral leader if the parish or organization does not have a priest. Priests do not need a ticket. Tickets will be mailed to the parish or organization prior to the Mass.

Chrism Mass tickets are required inside the Cathedral. Please contact your parish for more information on how to obtain a ticket. The Cathedral will open at 2:00pm. Seating is open except for areas with reserved signs. Because we would like to offer seating to as many as possible, we cannot reserve seats with jackets or purses. Concelebrating priests are asked to be seated in the reserved area of the Nave prior to Mass.

Parking/Shuttle Buses

Parking in the Cathedral parking lot is limited to ministers, Chrism Mass volunteers and those with mobility issues. Ample parking is available at the Riverside Ballroom where free shuttle buses will be running every 20 minutes before Mass from 2:00pm – 3:40pm and after Mass until 6:15pm.
