Two chalices are available: one for the 9am Mass and one for the 11:30am Mass.
A parishioner (family or single) takes the Chalice home every Sunday after both masses.
During the week the Chalice is to be displayed in a prominent location in the parishioner's home, along with a poster of all the seminarians.
Daily prayers are said for the Diocese's seminarians, six of whom are from St. Joseph's. Prayers may include the Diocesan Prayer for Priests as well as others.
Each week a different seminarian is assigned for special acknowledgment. By the end of the week a card is prepared for the seminarian by the parishioner, who sends words of encouragement.
The Chalice Program bag is brought back to the church the following Sunday to be given to the next volunteer parishioner.
