You are Invited to Host the Elijah Chalice Vocations ~

Everybody’s Business

Praying for vocations is the most powerful way to support vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life in the Archdiocese of Boston. The Elijah Chalice provides a focal point for this prayer in your own home.

Each week at Mass, the celebrant will use the Elijah Chalice for the Precious Blood. A family, individual or couple will be called forward to receive the Elijah Chalice. They will receive a blessing and then take the Chalice home, placing it in an area of prominence. Each day during prayer time, they will pray for an increase in vocations. Suggested prayers will be included. Each Sunday, they will return the Elijah Chalice, for the next host(s).

Let us pray in thanksgiving for those men who have become our priests. Their dedication and willingness to answer God’s call enables us to become closer to God in so many ways, especially through the Eucharist.
