Following the government’s recent decision to return the Restigouche region (Campbellton to Belledune) to the “Orange” phase of the recovery plan, the Diocese of Bathurst wishes to inform you that, until further notice, we are unable to open the churches in that area for public Mass celebrations.
We will inform you as quickly as possible of any changes, permitting us to reopen our churches.
Let us remain united in prayer.

From the Bishop's Office
We are finally in the “yellow” phase of the Recovery Plan put in place by the Government of New Brunswick, and this, within the timeframe we had planned.
After a joint meeting of New Brunswick bishops, we have all agreed to open our churches on May 30th and 31st for Pentecost Sunday, a great and significant feast for the whole Church!
