There are openings for Mass Intentions throughout the year. Masses can be offered for various intentions: For a deceased loved one, a family member, or a friend who has died as well as on the anniversary of the death of the deceased; to invoke the Lord’s special graces and blessings for a friend or loved one; to petition the Lord for the good health of someone who is ill or to pray for successful surgery and speedy recovery; to ask the Lord’s blessings for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary; in thanksgiving for graces received by an individual. In this practice of devotion individuals provide an offering for a particular Mass intention. In the Diocese of Buffalo, $15 is the recommended offering per Mass intention.
