  • Pastoral Letter on Employment Insurance from the Atlantic Bishops


    We are grateful to each parish priest, or group that booked a Sunday during the 2013/2014 year and continue to do so in 2015.

    The schedule for the forthcoming 5 weeks is shown here:

    April 26th - Fr. Everett MacDow, Holy Family Sydney Mines CWL, Sharon Ianetti
    May 3rd - Fr. Duncan MacIsaac, KOC 4TH Degree, Arichat Choir (Joe Prought)
    May 10th - Fr. Oliver, CBR Police (Barry Gordon 574-2750) & Choir
    May 17th - Fr. Al Maroun, St. Leonard CWL and Choir - Helen Dwyer
    May 24th - Fr. Leo Boone, 4th Degree KOC & Choir, Albert MacKinnon

    In order to schedule programming with ATV, we must know well in advance whether a group is taping or going live. If you are able to preside on Mass for Shut Ins with your parish and choir or alone, we would be happy to hear from you. The three components, priest, choir, congregation all have to booked in order for the Mass to proceed. The closer we get to a date with no booking, the harder it is to get all three components we need.

    Please email: Diocesan Pastoral Center
    or phone (902) 539-6188 Extension 222 to select a date.
