Chalice / Ciborium / Cases
Present Mass with style and grace using a communion chalice and ciborium from Matthew F. Sheehan. We carry a large selection of chalices and matching ciboria to choose from along with storage cases for when the sacred vessels are not in use. Chalices and ciboria are available in a range of finishes, styles and prices, ensuring every church may be successfully outfit with the necessary items to successfully perform Mass.
The Catholic chalice is one of the most sacred items used during Mass. It is considered a sacred vessel and is used during the consecration of the Eucharistic Wine. A chalice is typically accompanied by a matching paten or diskos, which is essentially a small plate used to present the Eucharistic hosts during services. Additional hosts are stored nearby in a ciborium and larger reserves are kept locked in a tabernacle. After Mass, the chalice, paten and ciborium are cleaned and stored for future use in a special padded and lined chalice case. Cases can be as plain or as decorative as desired, though their main purpose is for the protection and storage of the communion chalice and paten.

We've been in business since 1907 and take pride in offering an incredible selection of high-quality, beautiful Mass sets and items for all of your communion needs.
