“Gregorian Mass” match ups: available priests with people who have requests

UPDATE 10 January 2021:

Today I had note from a layman who made use of this matchmaking:

You helped me when my father died. (Feast of St Joseph 2017). Thank you.

The FSSP priest offered Masses in Jerusalem.
Last Mass @ Holy Sepulcher. My Father’s spirit visited me @ 3 am CST ostensibly at the conclusion of the last Mass.

There are some priests out there for whom these Mass sets really make a difference financially.  Consider being generous.

Right now, the number of requests waiting: 3
Right now, the number of priests available, waiting in my email: 0

____ ORIGINALLY Published on: May 24, 2020

In the past I have played “yenta” and put lay people who want Gregorian Masses (30 consecutive Masses for a single intention – usually, but not limited to, for the deceased).


If you can take such an intention write to me.  Drop me a note HERE

Put in the subject line


Not anything else.  Just that. Only that…. as in NOTHING OTHER THAN THAT.   Not “Free for Gregorian Mass” … not “I’m available”… not “Gregorian Mass request”… not “Free for Masses”.

  • In the body of the email, indicate what your present assignment/ministry is and where.  (If you don’t, I’ll question your competence and delete.)
  • In the body of the email, indicate if you can celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass or only the Novus Ordo.
  • I will forward to priests the email from the people who made the requests.
  • You work out stipends on your own.  I will have ZERO to do with that.
  • NB: Some people want only Traditional Latin Masses, some are indifferent as to which Missal is used.  Work that out with them.


If lay people (although I have also had priests ask!) want a Gregorian Mass set, write to me HERE.  Put in the subject line


If you put something else in the SUBJECT line, I might not see your email.

I’ll try to match you up with an available priest.

In the body of the email, you might provide a little detail (e.g., Traditional Mass or Novus Ordo, or either… for the living or for the dead…  urgency…).
