A daily Mass from St. Joseph's Oratory in French – for all

October 19, 2010
One hundred and six years ago today, in a small oratory devoted to Saint Joseph at the foot of Mount Royal in Montreal, a first Mass was celebrated. Today, thanks to the miracle of modern technology, patience and an inspiring donation by To God Go, a Foundation created by J-Robert Ouimet, viewers from around the world are invited to join in on the celebration of French daily Mass from the Crypt Church at St. Joseph’s Oratory.
DailyMassMontrealThe French Mass airs daily on Salt + Light Television, Monday through Saturday, with a live broadcast at 8:30 am ET and with repeats at 5 pm ET daily (there is no Saturday repeat though). The Mass will also be available on demand at www.seletlumieretv.org/messe.
During his lifetime, Brother André encouraged people to embrace the sacraments of the Church and to draw themselves closer to St. Joseph. While modern media can never replace the power of the sacraments, it can certainly help to draw people closer to Christ and his Church.
To ensure the sustainability of the daily Mass project, Salt + Light invites viewers to "sponsor a Mass" for a donation of $250.    This can be done by emailing us at info@saltandlighttv.org or calling 416-971-5353, or toll free at 1 888-302-7181, extension 245.
