Mass Intentions

The Mass intentions calendar is now open for January 1, 2021 - June 30, 2021.  We will be limiting the number of Mass intention requests to five Mass intention requests per family.  

At each Mass, the priest asks that the grace of that Mass be applied to a specific need or intention.  These special intentions are offered to God as prayers of intercession and thanksgiving.  In and through the Eucharist, we pray for the deceased, for those who are ill, for those who face various difficulties or challenges.  Often, people request a Mass in thanksgiving for God's grace helping them through a particular challenging time of life.  It is important to note that, while the graces of the Mass are infinite, a priest may accept only one intention at a single Mass.  The faithful may bring their own intentions to the Mass, which they each carry privately and place upon the altar spiritually in prayer.

The Mass intentions for the first six months of the year are available to be viewed and requested below.  Each week, the Mass intentions for that week are printed in the parish bulletin and the names are read during the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.

Mass intentions fill up very quickly.  Please check the calendar below to see what upcoming dates are available.  You may fill out a Mass request form to request an available date for your Mass intention.  The parish office will then confirm your request by phone or email and send you a link to pay the appropriate donation (Monday - Friday Masses: $10, Saturday & Sunday Masses: $25, Christmas/Easter Masses: $50).  Once the donation for your Mass intention has been received, your intention will be booked and added to the calendar below.

At this time, we will only be opening the calendar for Mass intentions for January 1, 2021 - June 30, 2021.  The next six months will be opened at a later date.  We will also be limiting the number of Mass intention requests to five Mass intention requests per family.  Each family will be able to place five additional Mass intention requests when the last six months of the year are opened.  This will leave Masses available for immediate intention requests that may occur throughout the year due to illness, death, etc.     

Would you like a Mass card for one of your Mass intentions?  This is a beautiful way to let a loved one know you are praying for them.  If your intention request has been approved and appears on the calendar above, feel free to stop by the Parish Office for a Mass intention card.
