Mass Intentions

Please consider having a Mass said for your loved one! Remember those who have passed away, for special occasions (birthdays/anniversaries), and for those who are ill. The Mass stipend is $15 per Mass. Contact the rectory during morning office hours to schedule your intentions…or go to this link: www.saintjohnkanty.com/mass-intentions/

Be sure to look at our prayer list in the bulletin…there are many people to pray for! Please remember to pray for those who you promised to, those who have no one to pray for them, and those requests that remain silent out of fear or embarrassment. Call the parish office during regular office hours to add or remove a name to our parish prayer list (716/893-0412). 

You can also arrange for a Mass by going to this link on our website: http://www.saintjohnkanty.com/mass-intentions/
