Anglican Diocese Of San Joaquin Mass Of Chrism 2017

Fr. Dale Matson

Our annual Mass Of Chrism for the Diocese was celebrated by The Right Reverend Dr. Eric Vawter Menees, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese Of San Joaquin. It was celebrated at Saint Mary’s Anglican Church in Fresno CA. The mass is a gathering of all the clergy in the diocese and interested lay persons. We give thanks to Fr. Michael Sclafani the rector at St. Mary’s and his parishioners who hosted the event.

Bishop Menees preached, celebrated and blessed the oils to be used by the priests for the coming year. Following the dismissal, we had a fellowship meal and Bishop Menees made announcements, offered prayer and entertained questions.

Thanks be to God.
