Traveling Chalice Invites
Please considering inviting the Traveling Chalice for Vocations into your home to pray for vocations in our diocese.
While we are experiencing the covid-19 pandemic, we ask you to please continue to pray for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life even if you are unable to bring the Traveling Chalice home. There are many appropriate prayers online for Vocations or feel free to pray those prayers you are familiar with and prayers in your own words. Thank you for supporting men and women as they are considering these vocations.
What is the purpose of the Traveling Chalice for Vocations?
The Traveling Chalice program provides parishioners of all ages an opportunity to pray for vocations in their own home in a special way.
How does the program work?
First, sign up to take the chalice home with you for one week.
On the date you have signed up, pick up the Traveling Chalice from the altar area, after you attend Mass on the weekend. Your week will last from Saturday/Sunday to the following Weekend. You make choose to take the whole case or just the chalice and booklet home with you. Additional spiritual refection materials are located on the Vocation Commission counter in the Gathering Space in a white canvass bag which you may take home for the week also.
What do I do with the chalice?
When you bring the chalice home, place it in a prominent place in your home where you will see it often, for example on the mantle or in the center of your table.
If you are praying as a family, hosting the chalice is a great way to encourage meaningful conversation with your children about vocations and God's plan for them to grow in holiness.
When do I return the chalice?
Please return the chalice, and case, to the altar in time for the next person on the list to pick it up at the weekend Mass they are attending.
Can I take the chalice home more than once?
Yes! Please sign up as often as you would like. This is a powerful way to support an increase of vocations in our Church.
