Mass Intentions

 

Mass Intentions are part of our parish Prayer List.  Each Mass is for all the intentions in our Prayer List. The priest will silently include all of these special intentions in his own private prayers at each Mass celebrated in our church.

Please write your Mass Intentions in the Prayer List book located by the narthex doors, and also in the chapel vestibule.  You may also contact the parish office so that we may do this for you.  For requesting Mass Intentions on future dates, please contact the parish office directly.

Mass Cards are available next to the parish Prayer List in the back of church and through the parish office.  Please take one of these free prayer cards and send them to your family and friends, to let them know that you are praying for their special intentions here at our church.

As with all the other sacraments at our church, there is no charge for Mass Intentions or Mass Cards.  If you wish to make a donation to the parish on this occasion, you may do so through the regular offertory collection at Sunday Mass.  Thank you for your kindness to our parish community!

Vigil Lights are located near the Tabernacle in the chapel.  Please kneel down, say a prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, and leave a Vigil Light burning as a token of your prayerful visit and special intention.  There is also no donation for Vigil Lights at our church either. 


Finally, please remember to symbolically place your special intentions on the paten along with the host, and also to symbolically pour out your tears of sorrow and joy into the chalice with the wine and water.  And please keep your special intentions in mind as you worthily receive Holy Communion!

Confessions

Confessions are heard both before and after each weekend Mass here.   On Saturdays, Confessions are from 3:00 to 3:45 p.m., and at 5:00 p.m. until finished.  On Sundays, Confessions are from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m., 10:00 to 10:45 a.m., and at about 12:00 noon until finished.  Please note that a Baptism may delay the start of Confessions after the 4:00 p.m. Mass on some Saturdays, and after the 11:00 a.m. Mass on some Sundays.  Thank you for your prayerful patience.

Confessions are also heard after each weekday morning Mass here. Monday through Saturday, Confessions are at 8:00 a.m.  Please wait in the chapel hallway after Mass so that the priest knows you want to go to Confession.  Before the 7:30 a.m. weekday morning Mass, we recite the Rosary at 7:00 a.m.  Consider coming to the Rosary, to the weekday Mass, and to Confession to start your day!

The Confessional is in the hallway between the narthex and the chapel.   If the priest is not in the confessional when you arrive, please notify an usher that you are here for Confession, and then wait in the hallway by the confessional door.  Since you are only steps away from our chapel, we encourage you to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament after you complete your Confession.  The Stations of the Cross are also located in the same chapel hallway as the Confessional.
