Marshall McLuhan, a Roman Catholic philosopher and public intellectual, gave us the phrase “the medium is the message”. In the early 1960’s, McLuhan could foresee the “world wide web” / the “internet” to create the “global village”
(another McLuhan phrase).
We are most happy to welcome you to surf (another McLuhan “term”) through our community of faith. Please enter into our website parish of St. John the Baptist and Our Lady of Perpetual Help. We urge you to come to meet us in our local parish as well: 390 High St., New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, CANADA. We welcome you to our home to celebrate the Eucharist together as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
“All are welcome”!
