Annunciation Vocations Committee, Traveling Chalice:

Traveling Chalice

The Traveling Chalice encourages parishioners to pray regularly for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. At the of Mass each weekend, a traveling chalice will be presented to an individual or family who has volunteered to take the chalice home for a week and pray and reflect on vocations. This family or individual would use it for daily prayer.

Along with the traveling chalice, there's suggested prayers, rosary, and holy water for the family to keep. If you would like to sign up, please call the parish house office at (209) 463-1305.

Sleeping St. Joseph

Sleeping St. Joseph

Have you heard of Sleeping St. Joseph?

St. Joseph is said to have received messages from Heaven while he was asleep. Place your prayer requests under the statue, just like Pope Francis does, and trust that St. Joseph will answer the in his dreams. "I have great love for Saint Joseph, because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table I have an image of Saint Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church!" --Pope Francis, January 2016

¿Has escuchado del San José dormido del Papa Francisco?

"Yo quiero mucho a san José. Porque es un hombre fuerte y de silencio. Y tengo en mi escritorio tengo una imagen de San José durmiendo. Y durmiendo cuida a la Iglesia. Sí, puede hacerlo. Nosotros no. Y cuando tengo un problema, una dificultad, yo escribo un papelito y lo pongo debajo de san José para que lo sueñe. Esto significa para que rece por ese problema." -Papa Francisco

And we have this confidence in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, we know that what we have asked him for is ours.

(1 Jn 5:14-15)
