“The Mass is quite simply the highest form of prayer. It is a re-presentation of Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary. In it the Beloved Son offers himself to his heavenly Father in expiation for the sins of mankind. One single Mass has more value than all the good works of men, because the Eucharistic celebration is the work of God himself. Attending Mass and worthily receiving Communion are among the most glorious acts a person can do.”
Fr. Edward McIlmail, LC
Over 900 priests of the Legionaries of Christ celebrate the holy sacrifice of the Mass daily, and each Mass is offered for an intention. That’s almost 330,000 Masses every year.
You can request a Mass enrollment for yourself or for another person for a special occasion, for healing, or for other special intentions. Information on each of these options is available on the Mass Program website to help you find the right one for your intention.
There is no price tag on the celebration of a Mass, however it is customary to give an offering. The donations that the Legionaries of Christ receive from the Mass program fund the needs of the priests and seminarians of the congregation.
