Mass Intention Requests

To ensure that everyone’s desire regarding Mass Intentions may be satisfied, you are encouraged to make your request(s) known as soon as possible, especially if you have specific dates in mind. A minimum of 2 weeks notice is required. All intentions are reserved on a first come basis.

Please check the calendar below, to see if your preferred date for an intention is available, before sending in your request.

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.

All Masses are booked with one (1) intention only, with the exception of 5:00 pm on Saturday where we book multiple intentions to a maximum of five (5). Families may request one (1) Sunday Mass (8:30 am or 11:00 am Sunday), and one (1) Weekday Mass per week, each calendar year. The intention for “Our Parishioners” rotates between the Sunday Mass times and is a requirement under Canon Law. We hope these guidelines will allow all parishioners an equal chance in requesting Mass Intentions.

There is no fee for Mass intentions. However, the recommended stipend for a Mass Intention is $10. You can use e-transfer to [email protected] (security question not required). You may also use the "Donate" button at the top of the page. Please be sure to indicate that it is for Mass intentions.  A cheque or cash may be mailed or dropped in the mailbox at the parish office. Please do not include the stipend in your offertory envelope.

IMPORTANT:

Before filling out the Mass Intention Request Form, please consult the Mass Intention Calendar to make sure your desired date is available. Thank you!
