Religiously devoted, Patriotically proud is the 4th-degree tagline. We have an opportunity to meet both in responding to this a recent request
Monsignor Jeffery Laible, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia, Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA in need of 6-10 Chalices/Patens for use by our Military Chaplains.
Many of our assemblies have Chalices/Patens stored and available to donate to our brother Priests, and are most willing to make such donations.
What greater need than the donation of a Chalice/Paten to our military chaplains who dedicate their lives to God and country, serving our military members and their families.
Let’s also remember to continue our financial support of the military chaplain scholarship fund. I urge assemblies, councils, and individuals to “pass the helmet” and donate $25.00 to support our co-sponsored seminarian program. Of course, larger donations are acceptable but any donation is welcome for this need.
We are in desperate need of Catholic Chaplains, as of today we are down to just 39 active Chaplain Priests in our entire U.S. Navy, and only 86 in the U.S. Army. The need is great, yet few are called.
Assemblies willing to donate a Chalice/Paten may ship them to:
The Rev. Monsignor Jeffery G. Laible
Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia
Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA
102 Michigan Avenue., NE.
P.O. Box 4469
