Perpetual Mass Association

he liturgies and devotions of the Roman Church are sacred treasures. Because of this, many Catholic faithful desire to participate in the graces and merits of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for themselves or others, both living and deceased.

 

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the souls of the faithful departed enrolled in the Perpetual Society. The Mass is also offered for the living members of the Perpetual Mass Society.

“Know, O Christian, that the Mass is the holiest act of religion. You cannot do anything to glorify God more, nor profit your soul more, than by devoutly assisting at it, and assisting as often as possible.” 

                                 St. Peter Julian Eymard
