Assign Mass Intentions

After you schedule a mass, indicate who or what the mass is intended for. You can assign an intention to one mass, or assign the same intention to a group of masses.
Note: By default, the term "Mass" is used, but you can customize this term. For more information, see Set Initial Program Options.
  1. On the Information tab, click Mass Schedule > Mass Intentions.
  2. To assign an intention to a single mass:
    1. Locate the mass in the grid, and enter the Intention and Given By information.
    2. If applicable, enter the stipend amount, and select whether it has been paid.
    3. Indicate the purpose of this intention.
  3. To assign the same intention to multiple masses:
    1. Select criteria to filter the mass list. For example, if you want to assign an intention to masses held during the month of March, select a date range.
    2. Select to display masses with intentions, with no intentions, or both.
    3. Click Apply Filter. A list of masses matching your criteria displays.
