Mass Cards, Memorial & Sacramental Gifts
“Do this in memory of Me”
Throughout the year, people want to remember their loved ones in a spiritual way. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the perfect offering made to God because it is Christ Himself who is priest and sufferer.
Around the world, hour by hour, as the Eucharist is offered, Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary and His Resurrection are made present, and His redeeming work continues for all. Christ told us,
The benefits of each Mass are infinite and include the whole world. The Blood of the new and everlasting covenant was “shed for you and for all.” Those who have holy Mass offered and those for whom a Mass is offered partake in a special way of the grace of the Eucharistic sacrifice.
Masses for Loved Ones
Spiritually, as you unite yourself with the priest who offers the Sacrifice of the Mass for your intentions, you share a bond of great strength: love of Christ in the Eucharist, trust in His love for you and faith in the power of prayer.
Throughout the centuries, Catholics have followed the praiseworthy custom of requesting that Mass be celebrated for themselves, or for loved ones, living or deceased.
The Mass intention can be to ask God’s blessing and grace on a loved one during his or her entire life, from birth to death. So often we think Masses can be celebrated only for the deceased, but they may be offered for best wishes, healing, get well, birthdays, anniversaries or simply to express thanks and praise to God for a loved one.
Through the Mass offering, you are united in love of Christ in the Eucharist and faith in the power of prayer
A Mission priest will celebrate Mass for you, a friend or family member, living or deceased.
Your Mass Offering is a special help to a Mission priest, poor himself and serving among the poorest of the human family.
