October 27 for Mass intentions for parish Masses for January 2—
 
December 31, 2021.
 
As the current COVID-19 pandemic continues, we will be following our current abbreviated Sunday Mass schedule for the foreseeable future. We have fewer parish employees now working in the parish office. With fewer Masses and fewer employees to process Mass Intention Requests, we have adjusted our process as of this writing. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’ Mass Intentions Requests.
 
1. Universal Church discipline as contained in the Code of Canon Law (canons 945 – 958) of the 1983 Code of Canon Law strictly regulates the offerings made for the celebration of Mass.
 
2. Canon Law does not permit us to keep Mass intentions for only those Masses that can be celebrated by our priests within a calendar year. Consequently, some intentions may have to be sent to the Friary Chapel for distribution to other priests who will be able to celebrate those Masses.
 
3. A Mass intention may be requested for a Mass for:
        A. a deceased loved one; a living person who is sick or suffering;
 
        B. a living person who is celebrating a birthday, anniversary or                       other special moment in his/her life;
 
        C. in thanksgiving to God; or for a prayer intention.
 
        D. We do not accept Mass intentions for deceased or living pets. The Blessing of Animals around the Solemnity of Saint Francis is our prayer for pets.
 
        E. A Mass intention may not be requested for a prayer intention that contradicts Catholic moral teaching. A Mass intention may not be scheduled f or an unknown, “special” or “private” intention.
 
4. Lengthy intention listings cannot be published in the Bulletin and must be edited for the sake of brevity.
 
5. The purpose of publishing the intention in the Bulletin is to notify the family and friends of the intention. Each intention is limited to either two names or one group. Please be sure to indicate if the person for whom the Mass is requested is living or dead.
 
6. In seeking a Mass intention, that Mass intention will be the principal intention at that celebration of the Eucharist, but obviously not the only intention since the assembly prays for everyone’s intentions and our common intentions in the Prayer of the Faithful.
 
7. A maximum of six (6) intentions per year from any one individual may be scheduled at the parish with no more than two (2) scheduled for a weekend Mass.
 
8. A maximum of six (6) Masses per year may be scheduled at the parish for any one intention from any one individual
 
9. Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-serve basis in the order in which the request is received at the Parish Office.
 
10. A $10 stipend, as determined by diocesan policy, is to accompany each Mass request. Intentions will not be recorded until the stipend is received. Canon Law requires that all stipends taken for Mass Intentions be said for the intention as designated.
 
11. Requests for Mass Intentions must be made by filling out the form. Completed forms with stipends may be mailed to the Parish Office or dropped off at the office.
 
12. Please note that Mass intentions may be requested for Sundays, most holiday and weekdays throughout the year. Mass intentions cannot be scheduled for Holy Thursday, Easter Vigil, or All Souls Day (November 2). One Mass every Sunday must be scheduled for the intentions of our parishioners known as Pro Populo (For the People) as required by Canon Law. Scheduling of multiple intentions for one Mass is prohibited by Canon Law.
 
13. Mass requests will be granted as close to the requested date and time as possible. If it is not possible to comply with the primary request, the next closest date and time will be scheduled.
 
14. The schedule of Mass intentions is subject to change according to the Mass schedule and there is no promise that they will be said on the scheduled day due to priest illness, schedule change, vacations, etc. Attempts will be made to contact the concerned parties ahead of time, but that is not always possible.
 
15. Payment is required at the time of placing Mass intention.
 
If this process is different than how you have “always done it,” we welcome you to a new way of doing it. These very different and somewhat unpredictable times with a pandemic, less Masses at the moment, and fewer priests have caused us to adapt and make changes in many different ways. As Christians within the Catholic Church, we have to be patient with and helpful towards one another. Change is not easy. In this situation, some of these changes are necessary. THANK YOU for your help and cooperation.
