Offer a mass

A mass has no price and cannot be bought. The faithful can, however, unite themselves more profoundly in the sacrifice of the mass by presenting a personal offering for a specific intention to be prayed for, which the celebrant unites with the general intention for the good of the whole Church. This offering is known as a stipend. Christian faithful have, from the earliest days of the Church, provided support in coin and in kind to support its ministers and apostolic works in spiritual communion in the sacrifice of the mass offered for the whole Church. This tradition is rooted in the Old Testament, when the priest received a portion of the sacrifices made to God, as a priest must be able to live from his priestly work. The material needs of the Church and clergy thus rely largely on the voluntary offerings of the faithful.
