Mass Intentions

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARequests for Masses are gladly accepted at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert. An offering of $10.00 for each Mass is the standard stipend, determined by the United States Catholic Bishops.

If you request Masses for specific days, please send the request at least six weeks before the specified date or dates. Mass requests can be made up to one year in advance.

Update: August 17, 2020 –   Currently, our rolling queue of Masses for which no date has been set has our priests offering Masses for intentions submitted in September 2019.   We are currently not accepting additional Mass requests.  We hope to re-open the online Mass requests portal in November.
