Arrange a Mass for a specific intention?
Please complete the brown 'Mass offering' envelope (available in the Church Porch) with your intention, day or date preferred, time preferred, Name of donor, Telephone number, and amount enclosed. This envelope can be put into the Sunday offertory collection, posted through the Parish Office door (Mazenod Centre-side entrance by car park) or to the Parish Administrator. If you would like a specific date, please could you allow at least 8 weeks notice for your Mass Intention or contact the Parish Office to check for available dates. Otherwise, your intention will be said at the nearest possible Mass to your requested date.
Upon receipt of your envelope at the Parish Office, you will be contacted by telephone to confirm the date of your Mass intention. Your envelope will be given to the Priest celebrating that Mass.
All confirmed Mass intentions are available for viewing on our website calendar which can be found on the ‘Dates for your Diary‘ page of this website or in the weekly newsletter.
