What is a Mass Card?

A Mass card is a greeting card that is sent to a person to inform them that they, or a deceased loved-one, will be remembered and prayed for in the intentions at a Mass. The most common occasion for offering a Mass is for the repose of a departed soul. The saints and early church fathers spoke of remembering the dead at the Mass, and encouraging the faithful to pray for those who have died. Other popular occasions include Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas and special intentions.

Requesting a Mass for a particular intention typically involves a monetary donation or stipend, which varies from place to place.

Here at the Printery House we are making it easy for you to send your prayers and intentions through a Mass Card. We offer two card sets which include a card for you to send to the person (or family of the deceased person) for whom you are requesting the Mass, and another card for you to send to the parish or priest where you would like to have the Mass offered (along with your offering). Each of these cards comes with an envelope for mailing. Choose between our Mass Cards for the Intentions of the Living and Mass Cards for the Intentions of the Deceased.

Whether is it is for the repose of a departed soul, the anniversary of a departed soul, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Easter, or any other special intention, these Mass cards are a beautiful way to bring comfort, joy and hope to a loved one.

We offer many other Mass cards designed to be sent to the person or family of the deceased person for whom a Mass is being offered. The card to request the Mass is not sold separately or included with cards other than those shown above. Click here to see more information on these and other Mass cards: Printery House Mass Cards

Please note that purchasing a Mass card from The Printery House does not automatically arrange for a Mass to be said for your intention. You have to do that with the priest or parish where the Mass will be said. Conception Abbey does accept requests for Mass Intentions. Please see https://www.conceptionabbey.org/support/ and select Mass Intentions as the designation of the donation. The Printery House does not arrange Mass Intentions.
