St. Gertrude is a Roman Catholic Parish in the Dominican heritage of prayer, preaching and teaching. Under our Lady’s mantle, gathered as the Body of Christ, we celebrate Him in the Sacraments, Sacred Scripture and in Catholic education. Serving our brothers and sisters in the New Evangelization, we seek to grow in love as we journey with Jesus to God the Father.

Based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church, this series answers three questions of the deepest importance to any practicing Catholic, or person looking for a better understanding of our faith: What does a Catholic believe?, How does the Catholic worship?, and How does the Catholic live?

Mass Offerings
What it means to have a Mass “offered” for someone. An individual may ask a priest to offer a Mass for a particular intention for several reasons: in thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person (such as an anniversary), or for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. This is the particular intention the priest brings to the Mass, but he brings other intentions as well, including those of everyone in attendance.

When a priest offers Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he is guided by three intentions: (1) to offer the Mass reverently and validly as prescribed by the Church; (2) to offer the Mass in union with the entire Church and for the good of the whole Church; (3) to offer the Mass for a particular intention, such as the repose of the soul of someone who has died.
