Do You Have Extra Mass Intentions You Can Spare and Share? The Mass offering or stipend is part of the financial sustenance of the priest.  Retired priests here in New York, some priests serving in our parishes and missionary priests in poor countries around the world often do not have Mass intentions for every day.  Many of them are willing and able to offer Masses for the people who are not able to be present.  If you have an abundance of intentions that you are not able to satisfy yourself, forward names and offerings for distribution to Mass Intention Fund, Office of the Chancellor, 1011 First Avenue, New York, NY  10022.  [Mary Tuohy, 646-794-2904; [email protected]]
