The Parish Chalice for Vocation Ministry is a program for parishioners to take the chalice home to display it in a prominent place for family to see as a reminder for prayer. At a special time each day, the family comes together to pray for answered calls for priests, deacons, brothers, sisters, marriages and lay ministers.
St. Mary's Parish School also has a chalice that is passed from classroom to classroom each week, allowing students the opportunity to pray for vocations.
To sign up to receive the chalice for a week, place your name and phone number on the sheet outside the glass doors into church, call the Parish Office (254-773-4541) or Phil Everett (254-721-8142).
The following are members of the Parish Chalice for Vocations Ministry Committee: Mary Ann Everett, Kris & Janet Haynes, Cathy Hussey, Jim & Jo Ann Mason, Heather Quintana, Suzanne Rockwood and Phil Everett - Chairman. You are encouraged to join the committee by contacting the Parish Office or Phil Everett.
O Father, you desire all of us to be happy.
Stir up the grace of a religious vocation in the hearts
of many men and women.
Grant to them the willingness and generosity
to give of themselves,their lives, their time and their
talents to the service of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord and
Savior, and to His Holy Church.
May more men and women go forth as priests, deacons,
brothers and sisters to bring the truths of our Catholic faith
to all others so that soon they, too, may know You better
and love You more... and serving You, be truly happy. Amen.
