Holy Week services began on Palm Sunday, and continued Tuesday for Christians around the world.

At Saint Agnes Church in Blackwood, New Jersey, the Chrism Mass took place.

As part of the service, priests took communion with the bishop.

The oil of catechumens and the oil of the sick were also blessed.

The Chrism Mass is typically celebrated on Thursday morning, but the Camden Diocese held it to encourage more attendance.
