Chalice Presentation

When a Fourth Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus passes into Eternal Life, their family is entrusted with a Chalice and a Paten provided by the Fourth Degree. They are encouraged to prominently display these vessels that mark their dedication to serve God by serving man. 

After one year the family then presents the Chalice to a priest that will then use them in the celebration of Mass. The Chalice is inscribed on the bottom with the Knight’s name and the date of their passing. Both Sir Dennis Nolan and Sir James Kentley were members of the Bishop Flaget assembly #307 as well as Former Grand Knights of the Father Bealer Council #3908 of the Knights of Columbus. They passed away within days of All Souls Day in 2022. 

Their spouses, Mrs. Dennis (Anne) Nolan presented her Chalice to Father John Paul, Parochial Vicar at Saint Pius X in Edgewood (lower left).  Mrs. James (Tina) Kentley presented her Chalice to Father Eric Andriot, Parochial Vicar at Saint Paul in Florence. (lower right) 

The presentation was made on January 13th at the Father Bealer Hall in Elsmere, followed by a brief reception.
