Scope and content

Addressed to one who has made a Mass Offering
Due to the large number of requests it cannot be guaranteed that an individual Mass will be said at the Shrine.
The enclosed is an explanation of the Novena of Shared Masses. If you do not reply then the presumption is that you want an individual Mass - it may be said by another priest who will receive the offering and the intention. If an individual Mass is very special to you then Fr Birch will try to accommodate you.
