Mass Intentions

We offer the Mass for a specific intention because we believe in the immense spiritual value of the Holy Sacrifice of Mass.  Mass intentions can be scheduled for those who have died, and on the occasion of a birthday, wedding anniversary, for healing, etc.

When you give offerings for Mass intentions, the Parish Office has limitations on accepting several intentions from a single person/family asking to do it on specific dates. We have to oblige to the needs of all the parishioners.

Please take into consideration that we cannot accommodate every request for weekend Masses.  The Church is required to celebrate one Mass per weekend for the People of the Parish; therefore, we are limited to the number of Masses available on weekends.

Please see these guidelines for specifics. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to celebrating Mass for your intentions.


  • Mass intentions are scheduled on a “first-come, first-serve” basis.

  • The Mass stipend put forth by the Diocese of Toledo is $10 per Mass.

  • Mass intentions will be published each week in the Sunday bulletin and mentioned at the offered Mass.

  • It is preferred that Mass intentions be sent in by mail using the Mass Intention form. This form may be found online, in the narthex, or may be requested by calling the office.  Completed forms, with stipends, may be dropped in the weekly collection basket or mailed to the Parish Office.

  • Mass intention requests will also be accepted by phone and in person at the office.

  • Mass requests will be granted as close to the requested date and time as possible.  If it is not possible to comply with the primary request, the next closest date and time will be offered.

  • The policy of the Diocese of Toledo is that there be only two sponsors, or persons requesting the intention, per weekend Mass.  However, each sponsor may include more than one name in their intention.  Weekday Masses may only have one sponsor.

  • Only three (1 weekend and 2 weekday) Mass intentions per parishioner will be accepted the first three months (Oct.-Dec.).  After that initial time, a maximum of six (6) intentions per year from any one individual may be scheduled at the parish, with no more than two (2) scheduled for a weekend Mass.

  • Mass intentions are annually reserved for: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, All Souls Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday.
