Each year, on Holy Thursday, our community gathers to receive the Holy Oils, consecrated by our bishop at the Chrism Mass earlier in the week. One person brings each oil, then our Prioress speaks of its meaning. We speak a short prayer that reminds us of the role of each oil in our own lives and in our ministry to the world. We sing a short litany for each, and then it is placed in the ambry. Our handblown glass vessels were made by Audrey Handler in 1987.
