We take requests for Gregorian Masses. To learn more about them, please click here. Thirty (30) consecutive Masses ($200 Offering) celebrated for the release of a Holy Soul in Purgatory as recommended by Pope Saint Gregory the Great. We send these requests to our Motherhouse in Rome, or to a papal agency in New York City for help in distributing Masses to missionary priests around the world.

Mass Requests and Mass Offerings are sent to Rome and New York City on the second and fourth Fridays of every month. The celebration of Masses will then begin approximately 30 days after the date they were sent out from Saint Louis.

Add your intentions via our Online Mass Request or the printed Mass Intention Request Form (see below).

The minimum suggested donation for a series of Gregorian Masses is $200. 

Requesting Gregorian Masses is easy!

Online: You can make an Online Mass Request. We will also send a Mass Card to you or an alternate address that you provide. Rest assured that recipients of a Mass Card will not be added to our mailing list. Or, see below if you prefer to request Gregorian Masses via the postal mail.

By Mail (online is our fastest option): Please print the Mass Intention Request Form. Then mail the completed form, along with your Mass Offering (see form for details), to the Missionaries of the Holy Family, 3014 Oregon Avenue, Saint Louis, Missouri 63118-1412.

A missionary priest in a poor country, often in a remote area, will celebrate your Request for Gregorian Masses. These priests depend on Mass Offerings for food and clothing. Because of the large volume of Mass Requests sent out for distribution twice a month, information is not sent back to us regarding priest and country specifics, only the approximate begin date.

Please watch our 2-minute "Family Moment" video produced for EWTN, Praying for the Souls in Purgatory.
