Mass Intention Waiting List
That so many Mass Intentions are received is a great sign of a community that prays and cares for each other. One of the consequences, however, is that we do have a backlog of over 100 intentions and the Parish Office are currently allocating intentions received last June.
Our admin team do their best to allocate intentions fairly across the Masses that are available. However, they can’t celebrate Mass themselves and they can’t perform miracles!! It is very difficult for our team to be able to guarantee a particular date can be allocated to a particular intention and the situation becomes unmanageable when pressure is exerted on them to do so.
Father Vincent McShane and Father Des Power have very kindly offered to take some of the backlog of intentions from us and offer the daily Mass they celebrate in their own homes as retired priests, for our loved ones.
If your Mass Intention remains outstanding and you are happy for Father Vin or Father Des to pray their daily Mass for your loved one, please contact the Parish Office directly so this can be arranged.
Your understanding, patience and cooperation will be greatly appreciated in managing this situation.
