Renewal of Ordination Vows/Chrism Mass

  • The Cathedral of All Souls 9 Swan Street Asheville, NC 28803

From Bishop Taylor:

I hope you will join me at the service for the Renewal of Ordination Vows to be held at the Cathedral of All Souls at 11:00 AM on Thursday of Holy Week, April 10. This service gives all of us who have been ordained an opportunity to reflect on our calling to serve God's people, and for me personally, it gives the opportunity to join with you in reaffirming our joint call to ministry in this diocese.

You are also encouraged to invite your Wardens or other lay leaders of your parish. In the liturgy I will also ask them to renew their commitment to serve our Lord with you in your parish.

As always, the service is designed to provide a respite from the stresses of planning services and writing sermons that are a part of Holy Week. Oils for unction and chrism will be blessed at the appropriate time during the Eucharist and available for each parish.

There will be NO charge for the lunch that follows but you do need to register by April 4th.  Please email registration and any food allergies to Alice Keenan (akeenan@diocesewnc.org). May this Lenten season be filled with God's blessings, grace and peace for you and for those whom you serve.
