Traveling Chalice Program
The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
ask the master of the harvest to
send out laborers for his harvest .
In this Year of
Consecrated Life, the Parish Council is excited to pilot a new
program that will allow us, as a Parish, to answer the call and
help to increase awareness and prayer for vocations to the
priesthood and religious life. You and/or your family will be
presented the Traveling Chalice after every Mass to
keep for the week. Instructions and recommended daily prayers
will be provided with the Chalice bag - all we need is your
willingness to host and pray every day for one week.
Parents, this is an excellent way to get kids involved and pray
together as a family!
See the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space to reserve your
Please consider hosting the Traveling Chalice for a week and
praying daily for an increase in vocations.
Questions? Please contact Allie Yardley (email@example.com). God Bless!
After the 9am Mass there is usually a
crowd of 50-150 parishioners enjoying a cup of coffee, fruit
juice, a doughnut and conversation, courtesy of our Knights of
Columbus. Fun for all ages, seniors to toddlers. Adults
standing around making or renewing friendships as the children
dart around playing but bothering no one. A very pleasant
extension of the 9am Mass or preparation for the next one at
a business? Would you like to remember a loved one with a weekly memorial?
