Have a Mass Offered
Whenever the Eucharist is celebrated, it embraces the entire human family, both living and dead, with its benefits extending to the whole world. However, it is a pious custom and powerful spiritual practice to request that a Holy Mass be offered for a special, primary intention: for friends and family, for the needs of the Church, in gratitude to God for some particular grace.
When requesting a Mass intention, it’s customary to make an offering, normally $10. This is not a charge for services rendered. At the University of Mary, these donations are given to University Ministry to help diminish the cost of the materials used for the celebration of the Mass – the candles, the bread and wine, and so on. Those unable to make a financial contribution are still always encouraged to submit Mass intentions.
If you’d like to let someone know you’ve requested that a Mass be said for them, you’re also welcome to pick up a Mass card from University Ministry.
