2021 Mass Intention Form

This year, due to Covid-19, we will only be taking mass intentions received through the mail, dropped off in the collection baskets or put in rectory mailbox.  On the morning of Wednesday, October 21st, we will randomly select all the mass intention forms we have received.  Mass intention forms may also be found in the back of both churches and via Flocknote or Bulletin.  Once we have gone through all the returned forms, we will call or email you to confirm which masses you received.
