The greatest of gifts: Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

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.

NOTE: You can also request a Novena of 9 Masses for your intentions.

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 and a missionary agency in New York. 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.

Automatic Option: If you would like to have Masses celebrated for your intentions automatically on a regular basis (your extended family, Souls in Purgatory, world peace, etc.), monthly or quarterly for example, we have a special online form for this. Under the Gift Information section, be sure to check the frequency of your Recurring Mass Offering. In the Additional Comments box, list your intentions and if you would like Mass Cards. To access this Automatic Form online, CLICK HERE.

Or, we can mail the Automatic Form to you! Contact us: 1-888-484-9945, or msf@msf-america.org. [Please use this contact information to change or cancel your Recurring Masses as well.]

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 63118-1412.

A priest of the Missionaries of the Holy Family will celebrate your Mass Request. Masses are celebrated in the order received, and because of the volume of requests, we do not guarantee dates. We celebrate all Masses as quickly as possible! Masses are often celebrated by missionary priests in poor countries, remote areas of the world, who depend on Mass Offerings for food and clothing.

Your offering to the Missionaries of the Holy Family benefits the pastoral work of our priests and brothers. The Missionaries of the Holy Family is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your gift is tax deductible. Your privacy is important to us, so we do not sell, share, or trade your personal information.

More information about Mass Intentions and Stipends is available here.
