Diocese of Palm Beach’s Catholic Christmas Mass to be Broadcast on Three Local TV Stations

 

The Diocese of Palm Beach will broadcast its Catholic Christmas Mass on Christmas Day morning, December 25, on three local TV stations for the benefit of the community and especially for those who are sick, homebound and unable to physically attend Mass in a Catholic Church.

 

The Christmas Mass was pretaped last week at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola in Palm Beach Gardens with the Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito as the main celebrant and concelebrated with priests from the cathedral. More than 200 people from different parishes in the diocese attended the taping. The Mass also featured the diocesan choir and musicians.

 

The Mass will air on Christmas Day on the following TV Channels:

  • 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. on CW34.  This is the channel that currently airs the diocese’s weekly Sunday morning half-hour Mass.  On most cable/satellite systems CW34 can be found on Ch. 4 or Ch. 34.1 on Digital Antennas.

 

Additionally, for the benefit of its regular viewers, the Christmas Mass will also air on the following other stations:

  • 6 a.m. – 7 a.m. on WPTV Newschannel 5, the local NBC network affiliate station
  • 6 a.m. – 7 a.m. on CBS12, the local CBS network affiliate station
