Mass Intentions

The practice of requesting a Mass offered for loved ones - living or deceased, in honor of a special intention or for  special occasion or for a special intention - is a long standing tradition in the Catholic Church.  It is a meaningful way of expressing support, sympathy and care for a relative or friend or simply to thank God for favors received.

In recognition of the power of prayer, we welcome requests for Masses.  With advance notice, we are normally able to fulfill requests for specific dates and times, and we will make every effort to accommodate your wishes.  If it is not possible to comply with your requested date, the next closest date and time will be scheduled.

Please feel free to submit Mass Intention requests on the Contact page of the website, through the mail or by placing your request in the Offertory Basket.  Requests should include your name, the name of the person and/or occasion for whom the Mass is requested, the preferred date and time, and if the person is living or deceased.

The suggested stipend for each request is $5.00
