We would love for you to commit to a specific amount via direct debit each week. This helps us to plan and is the most cost effective way to give.

When a priest celebrates Mass each day, he offers each celebration of the Eucharist for a particular person or intention. By doing so he applies special graces from God upon that person or intention. Anyone may ask a priest to offer a Mass for a worthy reason: for example, in thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person (such as on a birthday), or, as is most common, for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. This tradition dates back to the early Church.

When requesting a priest to offer Mass for a particular intention, it is customary to make an offering. In Australia the suggested offering is $10, which supports the material items used in the celebration of the Mass. The amount you offer for the Mass is entirely up to you. You can request a Mass for a particular intention by using the envelopes provided in church (place in the second collection basket).

A request for a Mass to be said is private, and is between you and the priest that offers the Mass. It will not automatically result in a name being published in The Parish Overview.
