Guidelines for Mass Intentions

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

St. Patrick’s recently received a message from the Archdiocese informing us of the following guidelines concerning Mass intentions;

1. There should be one Mass offered each weekend exclusively for the parishioners of your parish. In other words, it is not a specific intention for someone, but for the whole parish and this should be the only intention at one of the weekend Masses.

2. Multiple intentions are allowed for only two Masses each week at a particular location. The pastor may determine which two Masses will be multiple intention Masses.

3. The donation for Mass intentions is to be $5.00, but even if someone is not able to make this donation, every effort to include their intention should be made.

4. If in your parish or location you receive requests for more intentions than you can accommodate, please know that Mass intentions can be forwarded to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith who will welcome such donations and the opportunity to have these Masses offered in the missions.

Mass intentions for 2017 that have already been submitted and recorded will be honored as requested. The two Masses that Father Klores has designated, that will have multiple intentions, are the 5:30 P.M. Saturday Vigil and the 9:30 A.M. Sunday Latin Mass. The remaining Masses will only be allowed to have one intention per Mass.

The Mass Book will fill up quickly so please try and schedule your Mass intentions as early as possible, as we do understand that many people request Mass intentions on dates that hold a special significance to them.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
