Offering Mass for a special intention is a long-standing tradition in the Catholic Church. It is usually considered that special graces are obtained for whom the Mass is celebrated.
Masses are offered for many reasons, for the souls in purgatory, in remembrance for someone who is deceased, or in honor of a birthday.
If you would like to have a Mass celebrated for someone, visit the parish office. We will help you with the dates and times which are available.
As a way to allow as many St. Bernard parishioners and friends as possible to schedule Masses, the following policies are put forth to help accomplish this goal:
1. Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis in the order in which they are received.
2. A $10 stipend, as determined by archdiocesan policy, is to accompany each Mass intention.
3. All intentions must be placed in person; no Mass request will be taken over the telephone.
4. Mass intentions 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 scheduled.
This week, we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord.
