MASS FOR SHUT-INS
The scheduled Masses have now been completed for the 52nd Year. The masses will resume in the fall on ATV/CTC on Sunday, October 18th, 2015. We are grateful to each parish priest, or group that booked a Sunday during the 2014/2015 year and continue to do so in 2015/2016 year.
The Mass for Shut Ins schedule runs each year from the first week after Thanksgiving (October 18, 2015 first one this fall) until the last Sunday in May each year. This year it finished a week early because of the IWK Telethon this weekend. A special thank you to the wonderful volunteers without whom this would not happen and the supporters who send in their donations to keep these Masses for our shut-ins on the air. 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.
