Mass Intentions

To arrange a Mass intention, call the rectory office at 202-347-3215. Voice mail messages are monitored daily. The rectory office phone is answered between the hours of 10am and 3pm, Monday through Friday. If you call outside those hours and leave a voice mail message, your call will be returned.

There is no fee but an offering of $5 – $10 is customary for each intention. You may receive a Mass card for each intention in which you can write the date and time of the Mass. During this period of rectory office closure, please provide your name and mailing address so that the card can be sent to you.

At St. Matthew’s, it is not our policy to announce at Mass the name of the person who is being remembered with a particular Mass intention. Occasionally we receive requests to have the name mentioned if, for example, members of the family will be in attendance at the Mass. We will do our best to arrange for the fulfillment of such requests, if possible.
