There is no greater gift.

In the holy Mass, your prayerful intentions are joined to the timeless prayer of the cross, where Jesus Christ, in the greatest act of love, gave His life for us.

Your faith-filled offering for the Mass becomes an act of love that supports Capuchin missionaries around the world.

The tradition of offering Masses for others, particularly the deceased, dates back to the earliest days of the Catholic Church. Inscriptions discovered on tombs in Roman catacombs from the second century A.D. beg for prayers for the repose of the souls of deceased loved ones.

But today, offering Masses on specific dates in local parishes can be difficult due to crowded Mass intention schedules and fewer parishes.  The Seraphic Mass Association can eliminate this challenge.  Our missionary priests around the world are humbled and honored to offer Masses for your loved ones on specific dates.
