Day of Reflection / Chrism
This is the oldest of the events sponsored by Ministry to Priests, dating back more than thirty years. It involves an afternoon of reflection on Monday of Holy Week prior to the celebration of the Mass of Chrism. All priests living and working in the diocese are invited to attend. The gathering is held in one of the parish churches in the city of London. The afternoon consists of a spiritual reflection offered by a designated leader; in most instances this has been a priest of the diocese. In addition. There is a communal celebration of the sacrament of penance, followed by a meal for all the priests in attendance.
