EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

  • Pastoral Letter on Employment Insurance from the Atlantic Bishops

  • MASS FOR SHUT-INS

    These masses will resumed on October 19th, 2014 on ATV/CTC. 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 line up for the remainder of January and February is as follows:

    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.
