Welcome to Online Mass Intentions

What does it mean to have a Mass “offered” for someone?

banner best gift

Mass intention (calendar) refer to the particular purpose for which a specific Mass is offered. Most commonly, a Mass is requested for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. One should never forget the infinite graces that flow from the Sacrifice of the Mass which benefit one’s soul, both for the living and the deceased.

Although the origins of the practice of offering Mass intentions date to the early Church, we still recognize its importance today. To have a Mass offered on the occasion of a birthday, anniversary or special need is appropriate, beneficial and appreciated. 

Daily and Sunday Mass intentions to be offered here at Our Lady of the Lake are available, and there are many weekday intentions open for this year. If you would like to remember a loved one in this way, check the On Line Mass Intentions or stop by the Parish Office for more information.
