The National Catholic Broadcasting Council

During this week I flew to Toronto to take part in the Board of Directors meeting of the National Catholic Broadcasting Council The National Catholic Broadcasting Council is the organization that brings to our country the Daily Mass which is broadcast twice daily on Vision Television and also the televised annual Lenten Catholic Mission.

I sit as Chair of the Board and am very happy to be a part of this valued and effective service to Catholics and members of other denominations who find great spiritual benefit in the Daily Mass. With me here are Mike and Barb McManus. Mike is the prime moving force in the organization and production of the televised Mass. With the very expert and competent assistance of his wife Barb they make this much watched daily program available nation wide.

Here are some of the Board members, from the left Bishop Richard Grecco, Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto; Fr. Paul McGill, C.S.B who was a guest at the Board Meeting to speak about the construction being planned for St. Basil's Church from which the Daily Mass is broadcasted; Joyce Egberts, Mike McManus and Bob Giroux.
Here we will see the other members of the Board who very loyally and generously serve to make the Daily Mass viable and successful through their varied expertise and advice. Again from the left: Bob Geroux who oversees the Financial Statements and Budget; Fr. Paul McGill; Roman Melnyk; Peter Cathcart and The Hon. Mr. Justice Lucien Beaulieu.

And on the other side of the table from the left: Barb McManus, Sr. Evanne Hunter, Joyce Egberts, who reports on investments; Bishop Grecco and Mike McManus. It is a great pleasure for me to be associated with these very fine people and the work they do for the Church.
