The consecration of the Holy Chrism took place at the St. Tikhon’s Monastery Church. The service was presided over by His Beatitude Metropolitan Jonah, His Grace Bishop Tikhon, His Grace Bishop Michael, as well as Fr. Sergius the Abbott of the Monastery.
The making of the Holy chrism began early in the week on Great and Holy Monday and a constant vigil has been maintained since then.
Very special thanks to each and every priest who participated in the several day event; stirring the contents and reading the Gospel during each phase of the process.
