Safety protocols and other liturgical directives at St. Patrick were updated and include the following:
- Attendance capacity limits have been lifted
- Holy water fonts will be filled and changed daily
- Missals are available in the pews (please return your Missal if you took one home); the online Sunday Missalette is still available on our website
- Offertory baskets will be passed
- The Sign of Peace is reinstated, but with no physical contact
- Distribution of the Precious Blood remains suspended until further notice
- Livestream of Masses will continue on the same schedule
- Social hall will remain available for those that wish to social distance
- 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 for 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 people to inform them of the Mass. A card and the Mass or Masses said, can be a great comfort to a grieving family.
Please note: Due to the large number of requests that we receive, if more than five Masses are requested for the same intention, the additional Masses may be sent to a priest or parish where Mass requests are needed. We will try to accommodate the dates that are requested as available.
