High Pontifical Mass on Salt + Light

February 27, 2012
Now that Consistory celebrations have ended in Rome, Cardinal Collins has much more to do here at home.
To mark his homecoming, His Eminence, Thomas Cardinal Collins will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving on Feb. 29 at St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto. Salt + Light Television will air this celebration LIVE on our network at 10:30am ET on Feb. 29. If you don't get Salt + Light in your area, you can log onto our website and watch the Mass via our livestream.
The Mass is a ticketed event due to the current capacity of St. Michael's Cathedral and ongoing restoration efforts. On the other hand, Archdiocesan officials are inviting the lay faithful to participate in the Mass by watching S+L's live coverage instead. This will avoid any disappointment on the part of the lay faithful.
Nearly 30 bishops from across Canada and 400 priests from across the Archdiocese will attend the Feb. 29 Mass. A delegation of government officials will also be in attendance.
Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto and Southern Ontario will have a chance to pray and celebrate with Canada's newest cardinal through a series of regional events scheduled for late February and early March.
All celebrations listed below are open to the public. All are welcome to attend and greet Toronto's newest Cardinal!
