Vocation Chalice Program

Posted on November 21, 2023 in: Parish-wide Announcements

To promote family prayer and awareness of vocations to the priesthood we are introducing the Vocation Chalice Program beginning on the First Sunday of Advent, December 3, 2023 at the 10 am mass.

Each week the priest celebrating mass will call the family to the altar after communion to receive the Chalice and prayers for the week. The family will be given the chalice to take home, place it in a prominent place, and pray daily for vocations to the priesthood.

Prayer is a moving force in vocation development. Prayer is effective; prayer is powerful; prayer is essential. Few are called to the priesthood, but all are called to pray for vocations.

The Vocation Chalice Program is a wonderful way to involve our whole St Gabriel parish family, especially our children, in praying for vocations, and in uniting in perpetual prayer for vocations to the priesthood.
