The annual Chrism Mass of the Diocese will be held on Saturday, April 5, at 9:00 a.m., at the Cathedral of St. Andrew.  At this service, the Bishop blesses the oils of chrism (for baptism), healing, and the catechumenate, and the clergy take a portion of these oils back to their own churches for use during the coming year. 

Following the Chrism Mass will be an educational day with the topic "Building Strong, Vibrant, and Growing Congregations". Special Guest speaker is the Rev. Kevin E. Martin, retired Dean of the Cathedral of St. Matthew in Dallas, TX, and current Congregational Development Officer for the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. Martin is considered one of the foremost experts on congregational development. He is the author of two books, "The Myth of the 200 Barrier" and "5 Keys for Church Leaders", and has written numerous articles on leadership and congregational vitality.

Cost is $30.00 and includes lunch.
