Parishioners who are sick, homebound, immunocompromised, and gravely concerned for their health retain the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass, which has always been the case in normal times. Though we should take the obligation to attend Mass seriously, no one is ever morally obligated to do something that would jeopardize their health or the health of other people.
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 said. Masses are offered for many reasons; for the souls in purgatory, in remembrance of someone who is deceased, or in honor of a birthday or anniversary.
If you would like to have a Mass said for someone, please stop by the parish office to schedule an intention(s). The stipend, or offering, signifies the sacrificial nature of giving something of yourself to associate more intimately with Christ who offers himself in the Eucharist. Each diocesan bishop sets a suggested offering for a Mass intention. In the Archdiocese of St. Louis, it is $10 per intention (as of July 1, 2019). We also provide cards to send to people to inform them of the Mass.
