The Archdiocese of New York is partnering up with the E.W. Scripps Company to broadcast Mass on Easter Sunday, April 12, from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The broadcast feed of the Mass will be provided by WPIX-TV, Scripps’ CW affiliate in New York, to Scripps stations across the country- including KOAA-TV in the Colorado Springs and Pueblo market.
KOAA-TV will carry the event from 10:00-11:00a.m. on Sunday.
Timothy Cardinal Dolan Archbishop of New York will celebrate Mass without a congregation present due to the coronavirus outbreak.
As the most sacred time of the year for Christians approaches, public gatherings and worship services have been suspended due to the life-threatening public health concerns arising from COVID-19.
“We may not be able to gather in our churches this Easter, but, thanks to PIX 11, we’ll be together in spirit,” said Cardinal Dolan. “I look forward to praying with all of you, in a very special way, for those who have died and their families, the sick, and the doctors, nurses, and health care professionals who have been courageously fighting this disease.”
