Requesting a Mass to be offered
The Church considers the Mass the greatest possible prayer of intercession because it is the perfect offering of Christ to the Father by making present the Paschal Mystery of His death and resurrection.
It is a longstanding tradition in the Church that a Priest may be requested to offer a Mass for a specific intention, even when one cannot be physically present at the Mass.
By enrolling in the Association of Marian Helpers, the Marian Fathers offer the option to have your intentions remembered daily at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy .
You can also request an individual Mass or Masses for your personal intention, which will be celebrated by various priests serving worldwide. We do not assign locations for individual Masses in advance.
You may also request a Gregorian Mass to be celebrated for one soul. A Gregorian Mass is actually a series of 30 consecutive Masses offered for the repose of one soul.
Your offerings for Holy Masses are used to support Marian priests and their missions throughout the world. To request a Mass, please call the Shrine at 413-298-3931 Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. You may also call 1-800-462-7426.
Due to the difficulty in scheduling Masses on specific dates, we cannot accept "dated Masses" online. Please call our toll free line 1-800-462-7426 to request a Mass to be celebrated on a specific date..
