Location and Mass Times

Holy Apostles Parish Mass Times

The Atlantic Bishops have decided that, as of Monday, March 16th, all Masses (weekday and Sunday), Liturgy of the Word and all other Liturgical gatherings and meetings be suspended until further notice.

Holy Week

New! For Holy Week we will be using Facebook Live (Watch) to stream Holy Thursday Mass (4 pm), Good Friday Liturgy (3 pm) and Easter Sunday (11 am). Tune in per the instructions below for Live streaming Mass.

Holy Apostles Live Stream Mass

Father Roberto will be livestreaming Mass each week during the State of Emergency at 11 am on Sunday, April 5th. This will be on Facebook Live. Go to St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish on Facebook ( smbptantallon ). If you don't have a Facebook account you can go to www.facebook.com/watch and enter smbptantallon in  'search videos' box. We thank you for your patience as we learn this new means of communication.

If you can't join live, the recording of Mass will remain on Facebook and you can watch by going to https://www.facebook.com/smbptantallon/videos (this may also work to connect to the Livestream but we have not been able to test that yet).

Mass intentions for the Livestream Mass.
We will try to set up the Live connection at 10:45 am so people have a chance to get connected before Mass starts. At this time, if you have any prayer intercession that you would like Father Roberto to pray for during the Mass, you can put it in the comments before Mass starts.

Comments during Mass
If you are watching the Livestream Mass and you find the comments on the side distracting, there is an option on the bottom right of your screen to shut them off.

Click the little gear wheel and select 'Close all chat tabs'.

Masses with Spiritual Communion at St. Joseph's

Fr. Sebastian will be celebrating Masses privately at the normal weekend times for St. Joseph's (6 pm Saturday and 9 am Sunday). He will also be celebrating Mass privately each weekday at 7:15 pm. You can spend this time in 'spiritual communion' by reading the readings and Mass for the day and saying the following prayer at Communion time.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.


Confession Opportunities

Preventative measures will be taken for confessions. Confessions will be by appointment only. They will not be made in the confessional but in a location where where social distancing can be maintained yet privacy still kept.
