Who we are—more than dust

“You are made in the image and likeness of God, because God’s breath has been breathed into that miserable bowl of dust—and that has changed everything.”

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.
