Intentions


Mass Intention Calendar and Request

To ensure that everyone’s desire regarding Mass Intentions may be satisfied, you are encouraged to make your requests known as soon as possible.  All intentions are reserved on a first come basis.

The offering of Mass for special intentions such as wedding anniversaries, for healing, for comfort to those who are sick, for deceased family members and friends, for personal intentions, in thanksgiving for favours received, for a “special” intention, etc., is an act of deep faith and a desire to unite oneself with Christ in the mystery of the Eucharist.  We urge you to give serious consideration to availing yourselves of this special opportunity for grace and exercise of faith.

Please check the calendar below, to see if your preferred date for a Mass Intention is available. If a specific date and/or time is not required, please indicate “Any Time” in the Additional Information section of the request form found below the calendar.  All Masses are booked with 1 intention only with the exception of Thursday at 12:10 pm Mass, Saturday at 5:00 pm Mass and Sunday at 9:15 am (Bilingual German/English) Mass, multiple intentions may be scheduled for these Masses.  Families may request 1 Sunday Mass (8:00 or 11:00 am), and any number of Weekday Masses, each year.  There seems to be a misunderstanding regarding the Sunday “Our Parishioners” intention that rotates between the 8:00 and 11:00 am Masses. This is called the “Missa Pro Populo” and is a requirement under Canon Law 534 §1. It states: “After a pastor has taken possession of his parish, he is obliged to apply a Mass for the people entrusted to him on each Sunday and holy day of obligation in his diocese … “.  We hope that the clarification of these guidelines will allow all parishioners an equal chance in requesting Mass Intentions.  Thank you for your understanding and co-operation!

The stipend for a Mass Intention is $10.  A cheque/cash can be mailed, dropped off to the parish office or put in an envelope marked “Parish Office” and dropped in the collection basket.  Please do not include the stipend in your offertory envelope.  You may also use the “Give Online” button at the top of this page.  Please be sure to indicate in the comments section that it is for Mass intentions.
