Request a Mass Intention

“The Christian faithful who give an offering to apply the Mass for their intention contribute to the good of the Church and by that offering share its concern to support its ministers and works” (945 §2)
Annual Enrollment


Once each month, Mass is said for all those who have been listed in our Annual Enrollment. If you would like to add a name to this list for a full year, please fill out the form provided on this page.

Request a Specific Date
The Church considers the Mass the greatest possible prayer of intercession because it is the perfect offering of Christ to the Father by making present the Paschal Mystery of His death and resurrection. It is a longstanding tradition in the Church that a Priest may be requested to offer a Mass for a specific intention, even when one cannot be physically present at the Mass.

The faithful make a free will offering, called a stipend, in order to apply the Mass to a specific intention. By making this offering, the faithful, by making their own offering, associate themselves more intimately with Christ who offers Himself in the Sacred Host, and obtain thereby more abundant fruits (refer to Pope Paul VI's letter "Firma in Traditione" of June 13, 1974).

Holy Mass is offered daily at 9 am in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Assumption on Enders Island. If you would like to request one of these Masses, please call our office at (860) 536-0565 or fill out the form below.

Please note: The Chapel of Our Lady of the Assumption is not a diocesan parish and therefore cannot offer funerals, memorial services, baptisms or weddings.
