Vocation Cup

We thank the following families for hosting the Vocation Cup this past week:

The Lopera Family
The Quesada Family

The Vocation Blessing Cup is a wonderful instrument of prayer and devotion for our parish families. The Cup reminds each host family that it is their responsibility to pray for and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life. A family is asked to host the Vocation Cup for one week. It will travel from home to home as a sign of our total parish commitment to praying for vocations.

Seeking Volunteers for the Vocation Cup

Bringing home the vocation cup is a wonderful opportunity to unite any family in prayer, bringing them closer to God and to each other while praying for vocations.

If you and your family would like to volunteer to take home the vocation cup for one week, please fill out the information below and turn it into the rectory office or drop it in the offertory basket.

Thank you for your support!
