Holy Trinity Parish is now using Mass Intentions Online as our Mass intentions database and request system. This online module is easy to use and will allow you to request and pay for Mass intentions on your own. Please note that our Mass intention rules will still apply and that final approval will be given by the parish office for any intention(s) request:
When using the online module, simply click on the Mass date and time you would like to request (with teal meaning the Mass intention is available and gray meaning that the intention is already booked.) From there, fill out the intention (name) and what the occasion is (intentions of, deceased or anniversary) and select if you would like a Mass card. Once you’ve selected all your (allotted) Masses, click on the shopping cart to check out. You will need to fill out personal information in order to be entered into the system.
Please note there is an optional donation and transaction charge that can be added to your final amount. Thank you for your generosity!
After you complete your order and the parish office has approved the requests, the system will email you a receipt. If there is an issue with your request, you will receive and email and explanation about the issue.
This system will also allow you to request Altar Flowers and Flame of Faith Candles. Follow the same steps as above for the Memorial (at the top right of the page.) There is no limit to the number of flowers or candle intentions you may request.
Mass Intention - $10
To request a Mass intention, check the calendar below to see if your date is available, and use the online module to make and pay for your request. To ensure that Masses are available for intentions throughout the year, we limit six Masses per visit, and a maximum of three Sunday or Holy Day Masses. For more information regarding Mass intentions, please read the full regulations below.
Altar Flowers - $40
To request an altar flowers intention, check the calendar below to see if your week is available and use the online module to make and pay for your request. There is a limit of two altar flowers per week.
Please Note: Daily Masses are subject to change if a priest is not available. In the event a Mass in converted to a Communion Service, the presiding deacon will pray for the intention(s) assigned to the day. Intentions will not be moved to another day.
The Mass Intention Book for the next calendar year will be opened in July on the online system. To ensure that Masses are available for intentions at Holy Trinity throughout the year, we will strictly enforce a limit of six Masses per visit and the six may only include up to three Sunday or Holy Day Masses. We are blessed to have many parishioners and non-parishioners who take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to have a Mass said for a loved one or for a special intention. However, we also would like to ensure that all individuals have an opportunity to have a Mass said in the relatively near future as life events occur.
Note: If you request Mass Intention(s) by means which do not allow you to provide a donation at the time of the request (e.g. via phone, email, etc.), we will reserve the Mass Intention(s) for up to one week within which time payment must be received to secure the intention. To offer donations for Mass Intentions, the eaisest method is to use the online system. If you must send payment another way, it can be sent in the mail (check or cash), through the Sunday Collection envelopes (which should be clearly marked with the date of the Mass Intention) or in-person within one week.
For the good of the faithful and for the proper administration of Mass offerings within the Diocese of Joliet, and after lengthy consultation with the Presbyteral Council, I hereby decree the following:
Twice within each week, each parish or mission is permitted to combine the intentions of more than one person at a particular Mass. All persons whose intentions are combined must agree to the combining in advance.
The parish or mission may place in its "Mass Offering" account only ten dollars ($10.00) for each of these Masses. Any additional offerings must be either a) deposited in the parish cemetery account, if the parish has a cemetery whose long term care is underfunded. or b) transmitted to the diocesan Finance Office for the maintenance of diocesan cemeteries.
This Decree regarding collective Mass intentions is granted in accord with the Decree of the Congregation of the Clergy promulgated on March 22, 1991. The ten dollar ($10.00) limit is in accord with Canon 951, which allows a priest to keep only one Mass offering per day.
Pastors and those who assist them with the temporal administration of parishes are reminded that "offerings given by the faithful for a certain purpose can be applied only for that same purpose". (Canon 1267§3) Also, parishes may not accept intentions which cannot be satisfied within a year. (Canon 953)
This Decree will take effect on March 5, 2017.
