The Daily TV Mass available online
In 1998, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) engaged Michael McManus and asked him a question: "How can we present the Catholic Church on television?" The result was the Daily TV Mass. The National Catholic Broadcasting Council, through the use of modern media, provides access to the Daily TV Mass and the National Catholic Mission, as a way to stay near the Church and our Catholic Faith.
The Daily TV Mass and the National Catholic Mission have become an important connection to the Church for hundreds of thousands of the faithful across Canada and around the world via YouTube.
You can access the Daily TV Mass directly here.

2016 Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission!
"The Lord is my rock . . . in whom I take refuge."
~ Psalm 18:2
"In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we begin our Diocesan Appeal, Rock the Mission, with hearts and hands renewed by the youthful vigour of Jesus Christ. We are invited by this year's Appeal to encounter Jesus Christ, not only ourselves, but to allow our institutions to open wide their doors, Holy Doors of Mercy. We really want the whole Church in this Diocese to become an encounter with Jesus Christ, who is the Rock of our refuge, who is our secure hope, who is the One who can truly bring healing and peace and, indeed, the joy of Good News."
~ Bishop Gary Gordon
