Request a Mass this Memorial Day weekend

Holidays & Events

Request a Mass this Memorial DayThis Memorial Day we join together in prayer for all those who have served our country. Veterans, first responders, and those currently serving in the military have our heartfelt blessings and deepest gratitude. Remember them this Memorial Day by requesting a Mass in their honor.

When you request a Mass, we will celebrate the Eucharist for your petition during our Sunday morning Mass at the National Shrine of St. Jude this Memorial Day weekend.

Jesus said, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Those lives lost in the line of duty are an ongoing example of the love our military men and women have for us and our country. May God bless you and keep our military in His care.

Request a Mass this Memorial Day weekend for your special intention. Or, if you would like, post your comment below in gratitude for Veterans, first responders, and all active military personnel.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we shall remember them. Lest we forget.

    St Jude I continue to pray to you for this, I beg you please… pray that F will respond and open up to me. After a couple of months of total silence, I managed to get him to reply the other day. He said he’s constantly thinking of me and misses me, so I gently asked (again) for us to communicate more. I hoped he would respond this time, as every time I try to gently get him to start talking again he shies away – and sure enough once again he has distanced himself. Whenever I mention us talking and making one another laugh he distances himself. But if we are constantly on each other’s minds, we need to reconnect, we need to talk… This is so important… Please St Jude this constant up and down of emotions is so draining, it is stealing every ounce of energy and hope from me. I don’t know what more to do. Please make this seemingly impossible request become possible. Let us finally have a breakthrough and talk to one another again. Please, let us just communicate at the very least. But I ask you to please take my request to our Lord that we may have another chance and F can learn of my unconditional love. I miss him, I miss him… reading his message to me the other day meant so much, but it totally rips me apart that he’s dismissing me again, when I know deep down he doesn’t want this… Help him break through that depression, the wall of pain, please remove all obstacles that stand in our way. Please… Thank you dearest St Jude.

    Continue to bless my family and our health. Heal my sons autism, my daughter adhd, and my mother’s brain injury. I beg for prayer for these things and also that I get a good person or people to rent rooms in my moms home. Her expenses are too high and I am running out of money to keep her in her assisted living facility. My brothers do not help me with her finances and all is left to me. My daughter is helping me but I need two other renters to pay for my mother’s care and medical bills. God Bless and keep me in your prayers.

    I normally don’t ask for prayers for myself but I need to now. I had a head injury about 3 months ago and I am still feeling some of the effects. In addition to pain in my left arm, shoulder and back, I also have tingling in my fingers sometimes. Please pray that I will be healed of these symptoms so I can get my life back and start feeling good again. Thank you. In Jesus’ name we pray.
