Year for Priests and Prayer

In many parishes, including my home parish of St. Francis Xavier, there is a practice of having a family take a Mass Chalice home for one week to pray each night during that week for priestly vocations.  During this Year for Priests, several parishioners have suggested that we introduce the same devotion, and also to pray for the sanctity of priests.  If you or your family (no matter how large or how small) would like take part in this important mission, please contact the parish office.  Each week’s family will receive the chalice at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday.
