Sunday TV Mass
Do you know someone who cannot get to Mass?
Since 1952, the Archdiocese of Washinton has produced a weekly televised Mass for those who are homebound, broadcast from the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
It is a wonderful ministry for those members of our Catholic family who are unable to be physically present with a local worshiping community for the Sunday Eucharistic Liturgy.
The Mass airs every Sunday at 10:30am on WDCW-50.
For more information go to or call 301-853-4517.
