As Catholics, we pray for the dead every day. The greatest prayer we can offer is the Mass — if you would like to have a Mass offered for a deceased loved one, you can contact the Mission Office by emailing [email protected] and we can help you arrange this. The Mission Office can also assist in having Masses offered for living persons and other intentions you might have.
Masses can be sent to the diocesan Mission Office by parishes or individuals. The office receives many requests from missionaries and retired diocesan priests requesting Masses. Parishes with an abundance of Masses can send them to the Mission Office to be distributed to other priests, parishes or missionaries. People can also send in Masses for loved ones or special intentions. Perpetual Masses and memorial cards are also available.
The Mass After Death Fund
This fund is also coordinated through the Mission Office. Through the fund, people can set up accounts to be used for Masses after their deaths. Money can be added to the accounts at any time. Upon the account holder’s death, the account is used for Masses to be celebrated for the repose of his or her soul. Print the form and submit to the Mission Office upon completion.
