It is the long standing tradition of the Church to pray for the dead at Mass. We remember the dead in the Prayers of the Faithful, and during the Eucharistic Prayer. The Church always prays for the dead.
You can schedule an Anniversary Mass (around the date of the person's anniversary of death) or a Memorial Mass (praying for the dead at some other important date, i.e. their birthday, anniversary, etc.) at any of our regularly scheduled Masses. The offering for these Masses is $10 per Mass. To schedule a Mass, first check the availability on the parish calendar, then phone the Parish House at 508-668-4700 for more information.
You might also consider donating the sanctuary lamp that burns in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament either in the church or in the chapel in memory of a loved one who has died. The suggested donation for the Sanctuary Lamp is $15. Call the Parish House for more information.
We also have parish Mass cards for the deceased. These Mass intentions are sent to the missions with a suggested donation of $5. Or you can pick up a leatherette bound "spiritual bouquet" also known as a Perpetual Enrollment, in which the intentions of the deceased are remembered at all the Masses celebrated by the SMA Fathers, who provide the enrollments. These leatherette enrollments come with an enrollment card which you complete and mail back to the SMA Fathers along with your donation. Contact the Parish House for more information.
