Mass Intentions 2015
Especially Saturday Night and Sunday
Requests for Mass intentions to be said in our church has continued to grow. We cannot any longer accommodate everyone’s requests.
We will continue to follow the prior years’ practices so that more families will have a chance to place intentions on the weekend. The following policies continue to apply for the weekends:
Each extended family will have the opportunity to request up to four intentions per calendar year at a specific weekend Mass time (e.g., 10:30 a.m. Sunday);
Each extended family may request up to eight (8) intentions per calendar year distributed among the various times of the Saturday night and Sunday Masses;
Each extended family will be asked to distribute the intentions throughout the year, so that usually no more than one intention occurs each month.
All requests for these weekend intentions should be directed IN WRITING to Father Victor, who will make the assignment of times and dates. ALL REQUESTS ARE DUE BY SEPTEMBER 30TH. All requests, which have the stipends attached, will receive first priority.
Please make requests for weekday intentions, as well, by September 30th. If you have Mass intentions that you would like for 2015 which do not have to be on a particular date, please inform Father Victor as well and these will be entered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Second Collection—This Weekend
The annual collection to support the retirement fund of the aged and infirm priests of the Diocese of Monterey will take place this weekend.

The community is thanked for its long-standing part in this ministry to the priests.
