Elijah Cup Prayers for Vocations
Our parish has a beautiful ministry dedicated in prayerful support of vocations - The Elijah Cup Ministry.  
The Elijah Cup is a consecrated chalice taken home for one week, rotated at each Mass.  There is also the monthly chalice given at every First Friday Devotion Mass.  Each carrying case comes with a chalice, instructions, a selection of prayers, Rosary, book, and spiritual journal to share the experiences felt while praying for those called to religious life.
A receiving family or individual displays the chalice in a prominent place at home and prays for an increase of men and women called to religious vocations:  priests, deacons, seminarians, sisters or nuns.  Knowing that you are praying for them will lift their called hearts ready to serve or to continue as our spiritual leaders bringing us closer to God. 
We always need families and individuals to pray for vocations.   What a blessing ...so let this chalice journey to your home and t hank you for the prayerful consideration!
Please look for the sign-up sheet in the narthex.  For more information, please contact:

El Cáliz de Elías
Nuestra parroquia tiene un hermoso ministerio dedicado en apoyo orante a las vocaciones religiosas - el Ministerio del Cáliz de Elías.    
Este es un cáliz consagrado llevado a casa durante una semana, girado en cada Misa. También está disponible un cáliz en la Misa de Devoción el primer viernes mensual.  Cada estuche viene con un cáliz, instrucciones, una selección de oraciones, un Rosario, y diario espiritual para compartir las experiencias de sentido mientras que ore por aquellos llamados a la vida religiosa.
Una familia de acogida o individuo muestra el cáliz en un lugar destacado en su hogar y reza por un incremento de hombres y mujeres llamados a vocaciones religiosas: sacerdotes, diáconos, seminaristas, hermanas o monjas.  Saber que están orando por ellos se elevará el corazón llamado listo para servir o seguir como nuestros líderes espirituales que nos acercan a Dios.  
Siempre necesitamos familias e individuos orandos por las vocaciones.  Es una bendición... así permite que el cáliz llegue a su casa y gracias por la consideración orante.
Por favor, busque la hoja de inscripción en el Nártex.  Para obtener más información, favor de comunicarse con:
