Donations

Both St. Mary's and Sacred Heart thrive through donations from our generous parishioners. Donations can be in the form of offertory collections, mass intentions, memorials, and special fundraising.
 

Mass Intentions


Mass may be offered for a particular intention, such as the repose of the soul of a beloved friend or family member who has died. Mass Intentions are printed in our weekly bulletin. You may request a card or spiritual bouquet along with your Mass Intention. To schedule a Mass Intention please call the Collaborative Offices.  To purchase a Spiritual Bouquet please stop by the Collaborative Offices during regular office hours Monday - Friday (8:30am to 4:00pm).
