It is the ancient tradition of the Church that priests may apply the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for a particular intention of the faithful and receive an offering for doing so. The intentions are usually for the sick, the faithful departed, or in gratitude for some blessing received. On Sundays and Holy Days, at least one parish Mass must be offered pro populo – that is, for the intentions of all the people of the parish. Now that we have weekday Mass established in conjunction with St Mary's, you may have one of these Masses offered for your intentions.
If you would like a Mass offered for a special intention, please contact Becky in the parish office (email; 843.722.7696 ) to schedule the Mass. In both the Diocese of Charleston and the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter (for Corpus Christi), the suggested donation for a Mass is $10.
