Shop Catholic Chalice Sets and Patens Online
Jesus Christ shared wine with his apostles at the Last Supper from a common cup. Ever since, we've used chalices during the Sacrament of the Eucharist to share in the Body and the Blood just as he taught us. These sacred vessels are used by a multitude of Christian denominations to serve sacramental wine as a celebration of Communion. T. H. Stemper offers a wide array of beautiful chalice and paten sets in brass, stainless steel, sterling silver and gold-plated varieties suitable for churches of any budget and size.
Chalices are different than regular drinking cups. They are designed after the Holy Chalice to reflect the divine substances they carry. Some chalices are more ornate than others, including decorated based or intricate engravings. Only water, wine, and some of the Communion Host are allowed in the chalice cup.
Communion sets may include:
- Chalice – a cup for holding wine
- Paten – a plate for holding bread
- Ciborium – a covered cup for holding the Eucharist
Our incredible selection of traditional Eucharistic vessels includes plain or richly decorated, hand-chased designs. T. H. Stemper also offers the most complete line of communion chalices, also known as common cup chalices, and matching bowl patens for Eucharistic ministers.

Celebrate the Eucharist with New Chalices and Communion Ware from T.H. Stemper
Ever since Jesus told his Apostles to “Do this in memory of me”, Christians and Roman Catholics have made the Eucharist central to the liturgy. The chalice is the vessel holding the blood of Christ, making it the centerpiece of each Eucharistic celebration and mass. For this reason, Catholic communion chalices are traditionally made from a precious metal regarded as noble in whatever region the chalice is used. The use of such materials runs parallel with the importance of the vessel to the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
Chalices come in different sizes and dimensions, but they generally keep a rough hourglass shape. Browse our full collection to find the right size and style for your church.
Gifts for Newly Ordained Priests
