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 enclose the appropriate Stipend with your request.

Alternatively, during the Coronavirus crisis, if you want Mass said for a Special Intention, please email; arrangements can then be made for the payment of the appropriate Stipend.
