An individual may request a Mass to be offered by visiting the church Monday thru Thursday from 9AM to 9:00PM and Friday from 9AM to noon.
Masses may be offered for several reasons: for example, for another person's illness or as is most common, for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. Masses cannot be offered for saints, thanksgiving or the souls in Purgatory.
Only one intention is allowed per mass. Therefore, the weekend and weekday masses fill up quickly. However, an unannounced mass is also available in which a priest will say a mass for the intention in his private time. It would not be a mass that the family can go to or know when it will be said. Sometimes we send these masses to retired priests or to St. Leo Abbey for priests to say at their discretion.
