SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The sprigs from palms were passed out during the Palm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Bishop Gregory Hartmayer blessed the palms before the mass in Lafayette Square. The bishop will be holding various masses throughout the week that are only specific to this one week in the year.

"I hope that all of the faithful throughout the Diocese of Savannah and the viewing area would visit their churches this week especially because of the holy nature of these very special days," says Bishop Gregory Hartmayer.

 

On Tuesday Bishop Hartmayer along with close to 85 priests from south Georgia will participate in a chrism mass. 

Bishop Hartmayer will also bless the oils used in baptisms, confirmations and anointing of the sick throughout the Diocese for the next year.
