Mass Intentions for February 2018

The intention of the presiding priest for the daily Conventual Mass, as established by Abbot Martin Marty, OSB, is “for the living and deceased members and benefactors of the monastery.”

As per our Customary, on the first anniversary of his death, the Conventual Mass was offered for Fr. Gavin Barnes, OSB, on February 6.

As per our Customary, on the 30th day of his death, the Conventual Mass was offered for the Most Rev. Daniel M. Buechlein, OSB, archbishop emeritus of Indianapolis. Since the 30th day fell on a Sunday, the observance and intention were transferred to the next day, February 26.

As per our Customary, a Mass was offered for all living and deceased Oblates of Saint Meinrad.

The following intentions were remembered by the priests of our monastery as they offered Masses this month at the Archabbey Church of Our Lady of Einsiedeln, the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel of the Seminary and School of Theology, the monastery house chapel, the Saint Meinrad Guest House Chapel, the St. Bede Chapel, and in some of their various assignments:
