Prayer is not always words. For centuries Catholics have extended their prayer by such things as leaving a candle burning at church that keeps vigil when we are not physically present. We also have Mass said for our intentions—for someone living or dead, or, for ourselves. Having Mass offered is a fitting gift.
You may notice in the bulletin the list of persons who are remembered in a special way during the Masses of the week. This is a meaningful way to remember someone who has died, or to pray for the living. Many people offer Mass on someone’s birthday, wedding anniversary, graduation or other significant occasion as well as remembering those who have died and gone before us.
Mass also is offered for persons who are sick or in other need for special prayer. The usual offering for a Mass is $10. This is a donation, as there is no actual charge for a Mass. If you would like a Mass offered for someone, please call the parish office, 707-442-6466 to reserve the date of your choice.
