Readers can also continue to take advantage of our monthly missalette as well as the annual Sunday Missal, whether they are attending Mass in-person or participating from home through televised or live-streamed Masses.



During this global pandemic of COVID-19, we at Novalis Publishing and Living with Christ want to express our heartfelt appreciation for all you are going through to keep the people in your homes, communities and organizations safe.

In our own way, we are attempting to do the same, both for our readers and customers and for our employees. We are closely following the advice of national, provincial and local health authorities in an attempt to do our part to slow the advance of this virus and maintain the safety of our employees.

During the coming weeks, we will continue to provide limited service to all our readers. Our customer service teams, whether in Montreal or Toronto, will continue to take your calls and answer your questions. We will also continue to fulfill your orders, though you may experience delays in delivery due to transportation issues beyond our control.

As Christians, we believe firmly in the power of prayer. As you will see in the red box above, we are providing some FREE resources to help you in your own prayer life. You can download our FREE Living with Christ Prayer App, for either iPhone or Android smart phones, to get the daily scripture readings and a wide variety of prayers.

We are also working on providing other resources and will announce those as they become available.

At such times as these, our faith protects us from despair and gives us everlasting hope that God will be with us as we bear the responsibility of overcoming this crisis. We share your suffering and anxiety and will continue to pray for a quick return to health and normality for the entire world.
