Due to the overwhelming amount of Mass Intentions that we receive at Holy Family Parish we would like to set some guidelines. We realize that people want Masses on certain dates and some don’t care when it happens. We have come up with some guidelines to help make this process fairer for everybody.
When you request a Mass Intention you have 3 choices.
- You may have the Intention sent away to be distributed throughout the Diocese or it may be put onto a Concelebrating List which is a list that a second Priest at a Mass may take an Intention from. There is no way of knowing the date on these.
- You may book up to 2 dates in separate months if the requested date is available.
- You may take the next available date.
When there is a funeral or occasion that draws many Mass Intentions, 2 of these will be booked in 2 separate months and the rest will be sent away to be distributed throughout the Diocese.
This is in no way meant to deter you from requesting Mass Intentions as we feel it is wonderful that there are so many Prayers going out to so many people, we merely are trying to improve and make it fair for everybody.
