Mass Intentions

"One thing only I ask you, that you remember me at the altar of the Lord wherever you may be."

St. Augustine (d. 430) recorded the dying wishes of his mother, St. Monica in his Confessions.

Mass is offered for intentions of the living e.g birthday, wedding anniversary, in thanksgiving, if someone is ill or for some has died. The faithful generally make an offering, called a stipend, to the priest in order to apply the Mass to a specific intention. By making this offering, the faithful, by parting with something that is their own, associate themselves more intimately with Christ who offers himself in the Mass. The person has not bought the mass but simple made a small contribution for the upkeep of the priest and the work of the parish. Having a mass celebrated for someone is a source of comfort and hope and better than a sympathy card or bouquet of flowers

Our Lady of the Assumption Mass Guild. This is a special Mass Association and people are enrolled for different reasons but often when someone has died. These people living or deceased are prayed for at the altar of God regularly.

Mass intentions with Mass cards and Guild cards can be obtained from the Piety stall after Sunday or week day mass or by calling in into to Parish office during opening hours.
