Welcome to Season 61!

Mass for Shut-Ins airs Sunday, 11:30 a.m. Atlantic Time, on CTV television

Our season runs from the first Sunday after Thanksgiving through the end of May.

Since its first broadcast in March 1963, this television ministry of our diocese has provided faithful service to its viewers who now tune in from locations across Canada. Many rely on this weekend Mass for their spiritual growth and it allows people to feel included and connected to the Body of Christ, the Church.

Each week, a team of dedicated volunteers with support from parishes and organizations throughout the diocese organize and lead the Mass.
Broadcasts are recorded at the CTV studio in Sydney, NS.
