IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION

WHAT IS THE “IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY ( IHM ) MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION”?

The Immaculate Heart of Mary Memorial Association is a special offering made by parishioners of IHM, through which your intentions are remembered at a special Mass celebrated throughout the year.

WHY START SUCH A MEMORIAL?

This “Monthly Memorial” fulfills many of your requests for monthly prayer for your special intentions or for those loved ones who are deceased. Your intentions - Members of the Memorial Association - will be listed each week on the back of our parish bulletin.

WHAT IS THE REQUESTED OFFERING?

A yearly offering of $60.00 is asked for the intentions to be remembered at the Mass, which will be celebrated the first Wednesday of each month beginning September 7, 2017.  You are welcome & encouraged to attend this Mass. 

HOW DO I LIST MY INTENTIONS?

You may list your intentions one of two ways.  As one individual name: Mary Jones or you may list family groupings: The Jones Family.  Multiple names may be listed, but require an additional $60.00 offering for each name to be listed.  Please note, individual names will not be said at the Mass, but rather the Mass will be for “Members of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Memorial Association”

WHEN WILL THESE MASSES BEGIN?

As the memorial begins to form and intentions are submitted, we will begin the Masses in September of this year.  The “intention year” will then be from September to August, then we start over again.  If you wish to continue having your intentions remembered at these monthly Masses, you will be asked to renew your offering each year in July so we are ready to begin again in September.  You can add names at any time throughout the year.

HOW DO I BECOME PART OF THE “IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION”

Forms are on the table in the Church vestibule.  Complete and return it to the parish office as soon as possible with your offering of $60.00.  Make checks payable to:  IHM CHURCH.

If you have any questions, feel free to call the IHM office at 344-3108 during office hours (Mon ~ Thurs 9 - Noon   &   1 - 4:00.)  We will be happy to answer your questions about the memorial.
