EWTN shines its light

EWTN Global Catholic Network airs family and religious programming from a Catholic point of view in English and Spanish. Providing more than 80% original programming, EWTN offers inspiring talk shows, entertaining children's animation, exclusive teaching series, live coverage of Church events, and thought-provoking documentaries.

Beyond the broadcast vision, however, first and foremost, the spiritual heart of the EWTN mission is to bring the Eternal Word, Jesus Christ, to all. The religious centers of the network are visited daily by pilgrims who travel to Irondale to worship in the chapel or visit the breathtakingly beautiful Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama. Visitors of all faiths are invited to "come away by yourself to a quiet place, and rest awhile" (Mark 6:31) and to pray before the Most Blessed Sacrament, adored and loved perpetually by the cloistered nuns now living at Our Lady of Angels Monastery in Hanceville or by the faithful in Irondale.

2013 Catholic Radio Conference

KCDM Board President Joe Spillane and Webmaster Tony Miller spent three days in the Birmingham, Alabama area to attend the EWTN Radio Conference. The visit began with a Spiritual Retreat for Adoration and Holy Mass in the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrement on the grounds of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama. We were also in the studio audience for 'EWTN Live' hosted by Father Mitch Pacwa, SJ, for a discussion titled 'Saints and Scoundrels' at the EWTN Studios in Irondale, Alabama.

Then Thursday and Friday included sessions on how to improve our Catholic Radio Aposolate and included EWTN on-air personalities sharing their experiences and broadcasting live from the lobby of the conference.

If you are ever in the Birmingham area, plan to stop at the OLAM, sit quietly in Adoration, attend Mass and tour the grounds. A stop in the souvenir shop on your way out to get a memento of your visit is also interesting. It is truly an uplifting place.
