St. Patrick’s has a newly formed Vocation Ministry to promote vocations in our parish. A vocation is God’s invitation to love and serve him and his Church in a particular state or way of life, leading to holiness. The Traveling Vocations Chalice began the weekend of Nov. 4 – 5. The chalice is available to travel from home to home for one-week intervals. During the week the host family will be asked to make a special effort to pray together with emphasis on an increase of vocations to the priesthood, religious life, and marriage, as well as a clear understanding as to the vocation Christ is calling each family member. A binder of prayers will accompany the chalice. If you are interested in receiving the chalice, or being a part of the vocation ministry team, call Kris Dona, 605-786-7882.
