Seminarian Theo Heino Chalice Prayer Campaign
When a man is ordained to the priesthood, it is tradition that his home parish/cluster present him with a Mass kit containing a chalice and paten. We have an opportunity to pray for Theo Heino, who is next to be ordained for the Diocese of Superior. This prayer campaign allows different families to take the chalice and paten home and offer prayers for Theo’s intentions that week. You will have a seven day candle that can stay lit the entire week to create an environment of prayer for your family. There is a small book where prayers for Theo can be written. Our seminarians need continuous prayers through the seminary and their life of service to Christ after ordination. A sign-up sheet is at the back of the Church; or contact Trudy DeLawyer at email@example.com.
