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.
The Marian Fathers offer the option to have your intentions remembered daily at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy by enrolling in the Association of Marian Helpers or you can request a specific Mass or Masses for your personal intention, which will be offered individually by various priests serving worldwide. Gregorian Masses are a series of 30 consecutive Masses offered for the repose of a soul.
Your offerings for Holy Masses are used to support Marian priests and their missions throughout the world. To request a Mass at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, please call the Shrine at 413-298-3931.
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 dated Mass.
