Mass Intentions

In order to allow more people an opportunity to have a Mass said for a loved, we have a policy regarding Mass intentions. Parishioner families may schedule up to 12 Masses per calendar year. Non-parishioner families can schedule up to 6 Masses per year. The fee for having a Mass said is $7, which is an archdiocesan policy. You can arrange to have a Mass said by stopping at the parish office, mailing in your request, or emailing your request and mailing a check. Please write “Mass intention” in the memo line.
