Chalice sponsorship program bring new joy to the Church in developing countries
Fr. Alex Osei shows one of the chalices bound for a mission.
On the day of a priest’s ordination, he receives from his bishop the most important tool of his ministry: the chalice.
This golden (or silver) cup and its accompanying plate called the paten are the sacred vessels in which the priest will bring Jesus to his community. And yet, in many parts of the world these tools are hard to come by.
“You cannot celebrate any Mass without a chalice,” said Fr. Matthias Amuzu. “In order to hold the Body and Blood of Christ, it is central to the celebration.”
