Chalice for Vocations
“The harvest is rich, but there are few laborers to gather it in. Beg the Lord of the Harvest to send laborers into the harvest.” –Matthew 9:37-38
Thank you for your interest in the All Saints Chalice for Vocations Program sponsored and administered by Lumen Christi Council 13520, Knights of Columbus. We will "re-open" the program beginning on Father's Day Weekend (June 19-20, 2021). If you would like to volunteer to receive the chalice, please fill out the form and right or below (depending on device) and click submit at the bottom. We will contact you to confirm that the day and time selected works and give you additional information concerning the program. At this point all weekends are available but only two chalices can be distributed per weekend.
You are invited to be a part of the Chalice for Vocations program as a special effort to pray for religious vocations. The Chalice is presented to you during Mass, to be returned the next week, where it is to be transferred to another family or individual, sharing in turn as a community in this effort. During the week, the household displays the Chalice in a prominent place, so that all can gather around daily for the time of prayer. A packet of suggested prayers and scripture readings has been prepared to help you.
Our Catholic faith is a wonderful gift from God. The vitality of the Church depends upon us to create a Catholic Community that supports and encourages vocation awareness, promoting with enthusiasm all vocations: to the priesthood, consecrated life, diaconate, lay ministry, single and married life.
We should Pray daily for our own vocation, Pray as a community, and Pray for others to “hear the call.” Some members of the Church are called to serve through ordination, religious life and full-time lay ministry. Every one of us can give testimony to the ways these people have touched our lives and strengthened our faith.
