A priest's eye view

It's a sight that always attracts the attention of passers-by: about 100 priests making their way through the Cathedral garden ready to join the procession for the start of the Chrism Mass. This was Bishop Patrick's last Chrism Mass and at the end of Mass he addressed a few words to the congregation. He spoke of having enjoyed the challenge of being Bishop here, and of how it has been a privilege to serve here. Our attention now turns to the sacred Triduum, but we hope to feature a little more on the Chrism Mass sometime next week.
