Throughout August, CatholicTV will air several shows about the priesthood. These shows include a Catholic game show hosted by a priest, Conversations with Cardinal Seán O’Malley, a “series” promoting priestly vocations, and a show starring a Servant of God.
CatholicTV is a nationally-broadcasted television network headquartered near Boston. CatholicTV streams its broadcast simultaneously, 24 hours a day at www.CatholicTV.com.
Although much of CatholicTV’s programs are hosted or involve the priesthood, a particular emphasis will be given on the priesthood during the month of August. For example, CatholicTV airs a special programming block called “The Call” which promotes various religious orders including certain female religious orders. However, for the month of August, “The Call” will focus on priestly vocations and vocations to the brotherhood.
Another CatholicTV programming block entitled “Catholic Saints and Lay People” will focus on priests including Servant of God, Father Patrick Peyton. This programming block normally focuses on Catholic Saints and notable lay people including many lay women and nuns. However, the block will focus on notable priests for the month of August.
