A Gift of Love and Prayer
We celebrate many milestones in Christian life, from baptisms to first communions, weddings to anniversaries, and births to final passing. It is in these moments we seek the emotional support of family and friends, and the strength that only God can provide.
Mass intentions provide a spiritual gift to those you love. It tells the recipient that they are not alone in these moments. Mass intentions are a Catholic gift of prayer, asking God to bless them with his Spirit of love and peace. For that reason, they are perfect as baptism gifts, first communion gifts, and confirmation gifts.
They are also comforting for those who are mourning the death of a loved one, or for a friend who may be struggling in life. Your intention will be remembered by one of more than 3,700 Divine Word priests who are celebrating Holy Masses in the United States and 80 countries around the world.
Holy Mass intentions are a faith-filled gift you can give to your loved ones.
They are an important way to bring your cares and concerns to God. As they celebrate Mass, our missionary priests will be praying for your special intention.
Show your care for your loved one, living or deceased, by enrolling them in our Mission Mass League. Seven daily Holy Masses will be celebrated for them in perpetuity throughout the world by our Priests. A Mass card will tell them of your act of kindness.
Your loved one will be supported in prayer for the specific number of masses you request. Whether it is one mass or many, these prayers will bring God’s loving presence closer to your loved one.
This special intention is offered at the time of death to bless the soul of the deceased as he or she prepares to enter the kingdom of God in heaven. Thirty consecutive Holy Masses will be celebrated for your loved one who has passed from this life.
