The greatest of gifts: Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

In this image by Fra Angelico, Jesus Christ celebrates his first Mass and distributes Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper.If you would like to have a Mass celebrated for a special occasion, on behalf of a family member, a friend, or a deceased loved one (Holy Souls in Purgatory), please submit a Mass Request  to us. The Missionaries of the Holy Family are happy to celebrate Masses for all of your intentions. We will also send personalized Mass Cards. Please encourage your family and friends to request our Masses and Mass Cards, too.

We also take requests for Gregorian Masses, thirty (30) consecutive Masses 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. Note your intention via our Online Mass Request or the printed Mass Intention Request Form (see below). The minimum suggested donation for a set of Gregorian Masses is $200. 

Requesting a Mass Intention 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 a Mass Intention 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.

A priest of the Missionaries of the Holy Family will celebrate your Mass Request.
