Mass for Shut-Ins airs Sundays, 11:30 a.m., on CTV.

Dear brother priests and deacons,

As you are probably aware the new season for TV Mass for Shut-Ins will begin the first Sunday after Thanksgiving Weekend.  We are in need of priests, deacons, parishes and groups to come forward to celebrate Mass.  This will be our 54th year on CTV.  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 Darlene and book a weekend live or taped. 

Mass for Shut-Ins has a very large and committed viewership.  The volunteers are exceptional and committed every week to organize and put it all together. 

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 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 6:30 pm at the CTV Studio on George Street, Sydney.  

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 902-794-8431. 

For bookings please email or phone (902-539-6188 extension 222) Darlene at the Pastoral Center
