Mass Intentions for 2018

Requests for Mass intentions for 2018 will take place during the whole month of November. Because of the large number of requests for intentions, we will still keep the same limitations that we had last year.

All intentions are for deceased individuals announced by their first and last name. Since the parish now automatically schedules a ‘month’s mind’ and anniversary intention for those who have recently died, we will send any extra intentions that come in for that deceased person to the missions. Any other intention requests will be collected during the month of November and then scheduled as best as we can, casting lots if there are conflicts. It is not a first-come, first-served policy. Everyone is limited to two Masses. You may include more than one person for a particular Mass.

Opportunities for additional memorials will be

  1. Mothers Day Novena intentions;
  2. the Fathers Day Novena intentions;
  3. St. Mary novena (centered around the Feast of the Assumption)
  4. All Souls intentions.

Also, the vigil and sanctuary lights, and the bread and wine offerings may be memorialized. Also, Mass intentions for the deceased or for other intentions may be sent to the missions.
