TRAVELING VOCATIONS CHALICE PROGRAM The Traveling Chalice Program encourages prayers for vocations. This is a wonderful opportunity for all parishioners! Individuals or families can sign up to take home a special chalice blessed by Father Kraynak, and every day for one week take a few minutes to pray for vocations using special vocation prayer cards. The chalice is to be returned prior to the next weekend's Mass. It will be displayed in the church and then presented at the end of Mass to the individual or family who is taking it home that week. We invite you to prayerfully consider participating in the program. The program kicks off on Palm Sunday. Sign up in the sacristy for your week with the traveling chalice!

Stewardship Thought
May 19, 2019 - "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another." (John 13:34)

It is easy to love someone when they love you back. But it takes strength and courage to love someone when we feel unappreciated, used or feel our opinion doesn't matter. It takes courage to "love my neighbor" when he may be someone I don't like, someone I don't know or someone that doesn't look like me.
