During Holy Week, Archbishop Kelly celebrated his final Mass of Chrism at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King on the evening of Wednesday 27 March 2013.
The packed congregation in the Cathedral included Merseyside’s Church Leaders and priests from throughout the Archdiocese of Liverpool, who before the Blessing of the Oils, renewed their commitment to priestly service. At the end of the Mass the Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Reverend James Jones, paid tribute to Archbishop Kelly’s work and the Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese, Bishop Tom Williams, led the congregation in thanking Archbishop Patrick.
