If you choose to click the Mount Allison link, you will have the opportunity to see which Residences are available, and the type of accommodations.

2. Public Performance Video Licensing for Pastoral Charges 

EDGE is pleased to offer you the opportunity to obtain a Public Performance Video License at great cost savings for your church! If you were to go directly it would cost you a minimum of $300 to secure a license. But with the group savings, the average church only needs to spend $75 – $150.

We have negotiated a video licensing agreement with Criterion Pictures and Audio Cine Films (ACF) Inc. who represent most of the major distributors including Paramount, Universal, Alliance Atlantis, New Line Cinema, Miramax, Disney, Veggie Tales and many, many more!
