Mass Intentions

Mass Intentions, or asking for a Mass to be said by a priest for a friend or loved one, are often requested in thanksgiving, to mark a special date such as a birthday or anniversary, or as in most cases, to pray for the repose of the soul of someone who has died.  St. John Neumann accepts requests for Mass Intentions year round, although our books often fill up a year in advance.  To request a Mass for a loved one, please contact Libby Muhoberac in the Parish Office, 740/965-1358.  The typical donation per intention is $10.

Did you know that you can also request Mass Intentions year round from missionary priests?  Your intention helps to spread the Gospel around the world by giving the gift of a Mass to be offered by a missionary priest for your loved ones and friends – living or deceased. In doing so, your almsgiving will benefit many; the person for whom the Mass is offered, the missionary priest who will celebrate the Mass, and people in the missions. Request your Mass Intentions online at Your loved ones and friends will receive a beautiful Mass card (if requested) informing them of your generous spiritual gift.
