SINGAPORE – Archbishop Nicholas Chia celebrated the Chrism Mass with priests of the Singapore archdiocese at the newly renovated Church of St. Stephen on Mar 20, Holy Thursday.

During the Mass priests renewed their vows and oils used by the church – for anointing the sick, for baptism, confirmation and holy orders and for consecrating churches and altars – were blessed.

Archbishop Chia urged the congregation to pray for priests to be good shepherds and for more vocations.

"Vocations certainly will not be lacking" if priests perform their duties with utmost faith, he added. -By Joyce Gan
