DeSales Media Group, the communications and technology arm of the Diocese of Brooklyn, is announcing an expanded broadcast schedule of 14 Masses per week, celebrated in seven languages, beginning this Sunday, March 22, 2020. The Masses can be viewed live on the Diocese of Brooklyn’s cable channel, NET-TV, or online on the diocese’s website, dioceseofbrooklyn.org/masses.
The Sunday schedule, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., includes the broadcast of seven Masses celebrated in the following languages: English, Spanish, Polish, Chinese, Korean, Creole and Italian.
The weekday schedule, between 8 a.m. and noon includes seven Masses celebrated in English, Spanish, Polish, Chinese, Korean, Creole and Italian.
“The celebration of Mass in so many languages reflects the diversity of our city and a reminder that even during a time of social distancing, Christ and His Church are very close to us,” said Reverend Monsignor Kieran E. Harrington, President & Chairman of DeSales Media Group and Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn.
NET-TV can be seen in the New York City area on Spectrum (Channel 97), Optimum (Channel 30), and FIOS (Channel 48). A graphic of the Mass schedule is below and attached.
“DeSales Media immediately recognized the need for the faithful to have the opportunity to have the celebration of the Eucharist continue as part of their life, and that is why we have enhanced our schedule in these uncertain times caused by the Coronavirus. This extensive schedule allows many to hear the Word of God in their native tongue, uniting us as a Diocese in prayer for our individual intentions, for those who have fallen ill and who have perished from the Coronavirus, and for the brave doctors, nurses, law enforcement personnel, and caregivers on the front lines,” said Harrington.
