What is the First Friday Memorial Association?
The Association is a special offering made by the parishioners of St. Suzanne and St. Mary's of Redford, through which your intentions are remembered at a Mass to be celebrated each month throughout the entire year. The members of the Association are printed each week of the year in all three parish Sunday bulletins.
Why start such a memorial?
This Memorial fulfills many of your requests for monthly prayer for your special intentions or for those loved ones who are deceased; your intentions will be listed each week on the back of the parish bulletin; your offering of $60.00 per year helps to provide revenue for the parish, and to subsidize the bulletin publication.
What is the requested offering?
The church requests a yearly donation of $60.00 for the intentions to be remembered at this monthly Mass. Intentions will be printed each week for one year in all three Sunday bulletins. You are all welcome to attend the First Friday Masses and the Sunday Masses.
How do I list my intentions?
You may list your intentions as one individual name: Mary Jones; You may list family groupings: The Jones Family; you may not submit a litany of individual names or multiple families, space will not permit.
When will these masses begin?
We will begin the Masses in August. The "intention year" will once again be from August to August. And then we begin again. If you wish to continue having your intentions remembered at these Masses, you will be asked to renew with your donation each year.
