Diocesan Eucharist with the Blessing of the Oils
You will have received an invitation from the Bishop of Chelmsford, inviting you to attend this service and I would like to add a welcome from the Cathedral. If you would like to robe and process, it would be helpful to know you are attending as the Cathedral will be very full and a seat will need to be reserved for you.
The on-line booking in form is now closed so if you wish to robe, you will need to call the Cathedral office to let them know you are coming. Please call 01245 294498 or 01245 294492.
Clergy are asked to wear an alb and white stole or surplice and white stole. Readers should wear choir dress and LLMs an alb and medal.
If you do not wish to robe, there is no need to sign up. Just make your way to the Cathedral for the service.
