Mass Intentions

During the month of November, we take requests for Mass Intentions in the following year. In December, we schedule the requests. This avoids the 'first come first serve' rush for Mass Intentions. 

Requests can be made in person at the parish office Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 1 PM. Please wear a mask when coming to the office. Or you may fill out the request form and send it with the standard donation of $10 to the office by mail, dropping it off in the collection, or in the mail box at the office outside of office hours.
