Those wishing to honor a loved one during the celebration of Mass may request a Mass Intention. Mass intentions are made for the living and deceased and provide opportunities for prayerful remembrance of anniversaries, birthdays, and other special intentions.
The faithful make a free will offering, often $15, to St. Alphonsus Parish in order to apply the Mass to a specific intention. By making this offering, the faithful associate themselves more intimately with Christ who offers Himself in the Sacred Host, and obtain thereby more abundant fruits (refer to Pope Paul VI's letter "Firma in Traditione" of June 13, 1974). Upon confirmation of your Mass Intention date, you will be invited to make a free will offering.
After you make your request, Parish Office Coordinator, Nora Ramirez, will be in touch to discuss next steps. If you have questions for Nora, please contact her at 773-525-0709 or email@example.com.
