Mass Intentions

Praying for our loved ones


The practice of offering Mass for particular intentions is an ancient one, dating back to the early Church as seen in the catacombs of the second century and on tombs. This tradition is also seen in St. Augustine’s Confessions (c. 397), where Monica asks Augustine, “One thing only I ask you, that you remember me at the altar of the Lord.” The practice continues unbroken.
