We invite you to take home the Elijah Cup for a week and pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to the Lord’s call to the priesthood, diaconate, or religious life. Each Sunday, families, couples, or individuals are called up to receive the chalice used by the celebrant at Mass. The cup is then taken home and placed in a prominent area and is a reminder to pray daily for vocations. Please contact Nancy Nadolski with questions.
Prayer for Vocations
Gracious and loving God,
help the men and women of our parish to hear the call to serve your Church.
Our needs are great and our people thirst for your presence.
Open the hearts of many,
raise up faithful servants of the Gospel,
dedicated holy priests, sisters, brothers, and deacons,
who will spend themselves for your people and their needs.
Bless those who are serving now with courage and perseverance.
Grant that many will be inspired by their example and faith.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
