A ciborium is a covered vessel used to hold the Eucharist (consecrated small Hosts), thus the counterpart to the chalice. It is similar to a chalice but covered and larger; usually with a small Cross attached on the top. It is made of various precious metals, and the interior is commonly gold or gold-plated. The ciboria formerly used at SGM, which are flat roundish bowls, were donated to all the parishes of the Archdiocese after the Papal visit in 1999. Recently, a family made a generous and anonymous donation to purchase four new ciboria for the parish. At the base of each ciborium, there are three circular images; one each of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. God continues to Bless our parish family with abundance of generosity. Please pray in thanksgiving for this faithful family and that God will continue to Bless our Parish with faithful parishioners.
