Elijah Cup Sign Up

Parish sign-ups for those wishing to receive the Elijah Cup will be held after all Masses the weekend of September 29-30. This is Father Donatelli’s chalice that he used to hold the Precious Blood of Jesus during Mass. Our priest calls a family, individual or couple forward to receive the chalice. They receive a blessing and take the chalice home and put it in a place of honor. The family prays for an increase for perseverance of vocations. The chalice is returned before the Saturday evening Mass. Praying for vocations is a call from the Holy Spirit, a gift from God that is nurtured in prayer. Those of you who have signed up before PLEASE respond again. If you are unable to sign up this weekend, you may call the parish office or call Tony and Carlotta Zuback at 724-942-5758. Pope John Paul II instructed us that it is the job of the laity to pray for and raise up vocations.
