The sole purpose of the Seraphic Mass Association is to support Capuchin missionaries around the world, especially among the poor and in the most challenging circumstances.
Your offerings for Masses are sent to missionary priests. Frequently, a mission priest’s only source of revenue for his own needs and those of the mission he serves, is the donation for the Mass that he offers each day. The priest uses the Mass offering for food, clothing, and other personal necessities. It is also used to purchase candles, hosts, wine, and catechetical materials and to make minor repairs needed in the mission.
Our retired missionaries deserve care and medical attention when they return to the United States. Having served most of their adult lives in a foreign mission, they are not eligible for government benefits. Donations to the Seraphic Mass Association help to care for our retired missionaries.
