Priests would then bring the holy oil to their parishes after the Mass.

This year’s Chrism Mass also recognized priests who celebrated milestones in their priesthood — Msgr. Tomas Gonzales for his 50 years in priesthood, Msgr. Dalmacio Eusebio Jr. and Rev. Fr. Kevin McHugh for their 60 years in priesthood, and Msgr. Ruben Limcaco for his 65 years in priesthood.

Cardinal Tagle will also preside the “washing of the feet” during the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 5:00 p.m. Maundy Thursday. /kga
