TV Mass

Through Sunday, July 12, the Diocese of Palm Beach will air its televised Catholic Mass for the homebound airs on Estrella TV - West Palm Beach each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. This Mass reaches more than 743,000 households in the five-county area of the Diocese of Palm Beach (check your local cable or satellite system for the correct channel number). Starting Sunday, July 19, the diocese’s Sunday Mass will begin airing on CW34 WTVX (please see station information below)

 Estrella TV is a Spanish-American language station but the diocesan Mass airs in English. Each week, priests from around the five counties of the diocese along with Bishop Barbarito bring the Mass to the sick, homebound, in hospitals or in nursing homes. This broadcast connects our brothers and sisters in Christ to the diocesan community and the Catholic Church. It also provides an opportunity to evangelize to the community at-large and to bring others to the Catholic Church.

How to Find the Estrella Channel**
**Starting Sunday, July 19, the diocese’s Sunday Mass will begin airing on CW34 WTVX
(please see station information below)

Estrella-TV can be found on the following channels and cable/satellite systems:

  • Comcast on Channels 208 & 616
  • AT&T/U-Verse on 3024
  • Hometown Cable Plus on 197
  • Estrella’s over-the-air channel is 25.2

Estrella does not air on DirectTV or Dish.

 

Currently AT&T/U-Verse does not offer Estrella-TV on the basic cable package. We are awaiting for that switch to take place. For those customers and those of DirectTV or Dish, we suggest purchasing a Digital Cable Antenna that connects to your system with one cable and allows you to watch the Mass on the over-the-air channel 25.2. The antenna can sit on your TV or near a window. A Digital Cable Antenna can be purchased online and in the store of any retailer. Cost of the Digital Cable Antenna varies from $8 to $100.00, depending on how sophisticated you wish to purchase.
