Mass Intentions

It has long been a custom in the Catholic Church to have a Mass offered for someone who is deceased or for a special intention (i.e. for the recovery of one who is ill, an anniversary or birthday, or for a special prayer). The priest then makes it his intention during Mass to remember the particular request made.


At St. Mary's, we celebrate sixteen Masses each week. While our Masses are often well attended, most of the people present are visitors from other nearby parishes. Because of this, we have many Masses without scheduled intentions through most of the year.


If you would like to have a Mass offered, you may call or stop by the parish office during regular business hours or drop a note in the collection basket. Cards are provided on request by the parish to send to the family of the deceased or to the person for whom the Mass is offered. We publish the Mass intentions each week in our parish bulletinThe usual offering for a Mass intention in our ecclesiastical province is $10.00.


While it is not required for the priest to announce the intention at Mass, at St. Mary's our priests normally do. The intention of the Mass is the priest's prayer for the Mass, but not necessarily the prayer of the entire community. Each person present brings to the Eucharist his or her own prayers or special intentions to offer to God as well.
