Mass of the Oils

10 April 2017

The Mass of the Oils is a celebration of the whole Church of the Diocese of Ballarat, where we celebrate the unity and ministry of ordained priests in the midst of the entire priestly people of God in the diocese.  This Mass also has special significance for those who will used the blessed oils in 2017 – the sick, those to be baptised and confirmed.

The Mass this year will be held on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 6.30pm at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Ballarat.  Supper will follow in the Hall.

All welcome.


We are the Catholic Church in the Ballarat Diocese
we gather in the name of Jesus from the Murray to the sea
in interwoven faith communities. Spirit filled
we celebrate and share our journey
reaching out to nurture all God's people.
