Mass intentions can be requested either by use of a ‘Mass Offering’ envelope or online as detailed below.

If you do not have a preferred church or date, Masses are scheduled in order of the date they are received.

If you have a specific date or Mass time in mind for your requested intention, please submit it well in advance.  

Every effort will be made to schedule the requested Mass where a specified date is given, but this is not always possible, as on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation the Parish Priest is required to say one Mass ‘For the People of the Parish.’ 

The Mass intentions for the coming week and the following weekend can be viewed on the front of the Parish Newsletter.

 ‘Mass Offering’ envelope

Mass offering envelopes can be found at the back of both churches. Please PRINT the details clearly on the front of the envelope.

You can alternatively use a blank envelope with the following information clearly marked on the front.

  1. The name or intention for the Mass
  2. If there is a preference for one church, either St. Mary’s or Holy Family
  3. If there is a preferred date & Mass time (on days when there is more than one Mass) please state this
  4. The name of the person requesting the Mass
  5. The amount of stipend (cash or cheque) enclosed; a minimum of £5 is normal

Cheque offerings should be paid to ‘St. Mary’s Catholic Parish,’ rather than to individual priests.

The envelopes can be placed in the collection basket or returned to The Presbytery, 322 Woodbridge Road, Ipswich.  IP4 4BD.
