As discussed in the most recent Parish Newsletter, Our Lady Star of the Sea is beginning a new program designed to encourage parishioners to pray regularly for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. At the conclusion of one Mass each weekend, the Vocations Chalice will be presented to an individual or family who has volunteered to take the Chalice home and use it as a focal point for daily prayer that week to promote and support religious vocations. A manual which includes a suggested prayer schedule, examples of prayers, information regarding vocations, and biographies of our priests and seminarians will also be provided. The Chalice and manual are then returned to the Parish Office before 4:30 pm each Friday in order to be presented at a weekend Mass to the volunteer(s) for the following week. The Vocations Chalice program will begin the weekend of September 16-17 and sign-up information will be available soon.
Thank you for your prayers in helping to promote and support vocations!
