Dear brother priests, deacons and laity,
As you are probably aware the new season for TV Mass for Shut-Ins will begin the first Sunday after Thanksgiving Weekend in October 2018 (October 14th). I am happy to say that the month of October is already booked up. Looking for November and beyond. We are in need of priests, deacons, parishes, choirs and groups to come forward to celebrate Mass. We are the longest running TV program on CTV in Canada. SO many depend on this Mass for Spiritual nourishment every week. I receive SO many letters thanking our diocese for this Mass. Please contact Mae Rowe and book a weekend live or taped.
I would like to invite you and your parish (or group such as CWL, KOC, etc) to come celebrate the Mass. I also want to invite our retired priests to come on Mass for
Shut-Ins. I would love to see priests outside of the CBRM to come.
We broadcast live on Sundays.
If that day is not possible for your parish or group we can pre-tape the Tuesday before at 6:30pm
at the CTV Studio on George Street, Sydney.
We need Parish Priests, parish communities and groups to book a weekend Mass as soon as possible. Last year we did very well but it was a slow start. I ended up presiding at many Masses, we had to find congregations and ask choirs to come in and assist us.
So it is my hope that we will have many weekends booked before we begin in October 2018.
Thank you for the support you give to Mass for Shut-Ins. I look forward to working with you and your parish or parish group in the near future. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My Glebe House number is 902-562-9810
For bookings please email or phone (902-539-6188 extension 222) Mae Rowe at the Pastoral Center Mae@dioceseofantigonish.ca
