Many people wish to remember their living and deceased relatives and friends by having a mass celebrated in their honor. These masses are celebrated in the parish and are announced in the weekly bulletin. Please stop by the Parish Center to arrange a date, or if that is not possible, please phone. The number of masses that can be reserved is limited due to the number of requests received and the need to fairly accommodate all parishioners' requests as best we can. The typical offering of $10.00 supports the work of the Oblates. Checks should be made payable to the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales.
Memorial Donations for Weekly Worship
Another way to remember both living and deceased relatives and friends is by making a donation for the altar wine or the sanctuary candle that continually burns before the Blessed Sacrament.
The Memorial Fund consists of donations given in honor of loved ones. These donations are used to purchase church items in memory of the person(s) honored. Examples of items purchased by the Fund include vestments, wall and altar hangings, banners, etc. The Fund also is used for improvement and enhancement of our church facilities and church grounds. Gifts both large and small are most welcome and appreciated. To arrange a memorial, please contact the pastor.
