Mass Intentions

Anyone wishing to have a Mass said for a personal intention, should print and complete the “Mass Intention Request Form” available via this link.  This form is also available at the back of the church.  Please send the completed form, with the appropriate stipend, to the Parish Secretary.

Please note that as we currently do not have  a resident Parish Priest, we have only two Masses each week to allocate for individual. Intentions, and the procedure is now as follows.

  1. In fairness to our three priests, they do not know of the reservations already made and cannot commit to any individual request, for either of our churches.
  2. Every request for a Mass for personal intentions MUST be made on the relevant form, sent to the Parish Secretary at the Presbytery; (For queries, 07874 658 653).
  3. If your date/time is taken, you can ask if the Mass can be said by Fr Mike at Bungay.
  4. Alternatively, any parish in our Deanery, e.g. Lowestoft, Southwold, Poringland, Gorleston or Great Yarmouth, may be able to help; phone numbers are available on request.
  5. Fr Martin, now at the Congregation of St Gregory (but same email or phone), may also be able to oblige.
  6. If none of these is possible, Karen may investigate “sharing” the Mass with the reservation holder.
  7. Any “sharing” will require the agreement of both parties; the principle is “first come, first served”.
  8. No more than two “Intentions” can be accepted for any Mass.
  9. Only one Stipend is payable for a Mass; the applicants can arrange this how they wish.
