EWTN to Televise Mass from The Catholic University of America

EWTN will reportedly be televising the annual Mass in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in association with the Dominican House of Studies and the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).

The Mass on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 12:10 p.m. will be held in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Crypt Church. Prior Provincial Very Rev. Brian Martin Mulcahy, O.P. will be the celebrant and homilist this year.

Students from nearby Archbishop Carroll High School and St. Anthony Catholic School will also participate.

“Two years ago we began the practice of inviting the National Catholic Educational Association, which comprises Catholic elementary and high schools throughout the country, to tune into our Mass of the Holy Spirit that is broadcast nationwide by EWTN,” said Catholic University President John Garvey in a release. “We thought it was a wonderful way for all of us to open the new academic year.

“While our 6,841 Catholic schools all across the country will be marking Catholic Schools Week with many local school and diocesan events, this national liturgy will serve as a powerful reminder of the ties that bind us together as Christ-centered places of learning,”  said Karen Ristau, NCEA president, in a release. “In this digital age, it is exciting to think that our Catholic school students from across the country can be brought together to celebrate the Mass of St. Thomas Aquinas.”

National Catholic Schools Week, founded in 1974, is a joint project of NCEA and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
