Michael J. Keyes, D. D., Bishop of Savannah, October 15, by officials of the Mis- sionary Society, of which Mrs. John J. McManus is president, and was consecrated by him October 17, Bishop Keyes expressed his great ap- preciation to the contributors of ma- terial to the chalice and to the of- ricers and members of the Missionary Society and bestowed his blessing on them. The chalice bears this engraving: "To our beloved Bishop, the Most Bey. Michael J. Keyes, S. M., D. D., Bishop of Savannah, ordained June 21, 1907, consecrated October 18,1922. Material for this dlaliee collected by the Catholic Missionary Society of Georgia, 1932." The chalice is of special design, nine and three-quarters inches in height, Gothic in form, with the rose and foliage of the Tudor period as a see- ondary treatment. The base is orna- mented with Gothic panels, supple- mented with Tudor deail, and en- riched with bas-relief medallions. The moulding and general treatment of the base is of original character; the staff is also of Gothic detail and the knob is round in form, jeweled with beautiful amethysts. The Gothic de- tail continues" on the ca,yx, and the Tudor rose is also in evidence there- on. The paten is six inches in dia- meter, and has the Bishop's Coat of Arms engraved "in the center. One panel contains the Coat of Arms of the Bishop, and a cross. An- other contains the Agnus Dei and another the emblem of the Holy Ghost, the Dove. Other panels have the Lily, which recalls the Annuncia- tion, Star with rays, symbolic of Bethlehem and the Nativity, and the Shell, from which issue tiny streams of water, signifying Baptist. The chalice was designed and executed by Gorham Company of New York. Bishop Keyes requested that there be no formal observance of the tenth anniversary of his consecration as Bishop of Savannah, a request which was respected. The Missionary So- ciety arranged to mark the occasion by presenting to the Bishop the chal- ice made from the contributions of gold from his people throughout the state, and its officials assert that the society has never undertaken any- thing to which there was a more en- thusiastic reaction, or anything so easily accomplished and welcomed with such whole-hearted cooperation.
