Bishop DiLorenzo solemnly blesses new St Benedict Chapel in Chesapeake, Va

Bishop DiLorenzo begins the ceremony of blessing at the cornerstone of the structure where he trowels cement into spaces around the stone to symbolize that Christ is the cornerstone of the structure of His Body the Church in the world, and Who is represented by the person of the bishop.

The ceremony also included a procession around the structure accompanied by chant and the use of holy water for sanctification and the warding off of the Evil One to protect priest and people as they worship the true God therein through the offering of holy Mass and the celebration of the sacramental life.
