Mass Stipends

The priests are now able to accept Mass stipends. Please observe the following points regarding them:

  • The customary Mass stipend is $20. (Make checks out to "Mary Immaculate Church").
  • Requests for a specific date will be honored, if possible, but must be submitted at least one month prior to the requested date.
  • Gregorian series of Masses are offered only for deceased parishioners.


Heard 45 minutes before each Mass. Note: Confessions begin at 8:45am in Stoneham & 3:15pm in Hallowell. Please arrive early enough if you wish to avail yourself of the sacrament of Penance. Confessions will end five minutes before Mass, in order that Father may begin Mass promptly.

Sunday Catechism for Children

Classes will begin immediately after Mass in the little nook next to the kitchen. Classes will be geared toward First Communicants for the first month or so, but all children 9 and under are urged to attend.

Please help in the planning of these classes by notifying the Sisters of the names and ages of your children who will be attending.


Please call Father to make arrangements for the Sacraments of Baptism, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction.

***Blessing of Religious Articles will take place at the Communion Rail after Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month; Confraternity meeting on 3rd Sunday.

Today's Quotation

The Church uses her chant and her ceremonies to appeal to the sense faculties, and to reach, through them, the souls of her children more fully, and to give to their wills a more effective presentation of the true goods, and raise them up more surely, more easily, and more completely to God. I can therefore enjoy all the changeless, wholesome refreshment of dogma thrown into relief by Liturgy, and let myself be moved by the majestic spectacle of a solemn High Mass, and esteem the prayers of absolution, of the touching rites of Baptism, Extreme Unction, the Burial Service, and so on.

- Dom Jean-Baptiste Chautard, The Soul of the Apostolate (Trappist, KY: Abbey of Gethsemani, 1946, pp. 218-219).
