CatholicTV in Detroit

As of yesterday, November 27th, CatholicTV is now in Detroit!

The Archdiocese of Detroit's cable TV channel, CTND, switched its network affiliation to CatholicTV, increasing our potential audience to more than 11 million homes. We're so grateful to Archbishop Allen Vigneron and Ned McGrath, director of communications for the Archdiocese of Detroit, for their openness to the collaboration.

Advent means a new liturgical year for the Catholic Church, and what a perfect season for for a new partnership with Detroit.

CatholicTV's Father Reed had this to add:

In our digital multi-media society, television remains a powerful force for proclaiming the Gospel. It is my sincere hope that our interesting mix of spiritual, educational and entertaining programming from all over the nation will be a source of comfort and strength as well as a force for evangelization for the Church of Detroit.

Please keep the continued expansion of CatholicTV in your prayers, and add your name to our list of supporters at www.CatholicTVEverywhere.com

The Gist

There's a whole lot of exciting stuff happening here at CatholicTV, not the least of which is the upcoming premiere of the brand new [and first Catholic] sitcom, Mass Confusion, on Thanksgiving night.

But as the end of the year approaches, we're also getting really excited about our new women's talk show, The Gist, set to premiere in January. We think relevant Catholic programming for women is long overdue, so CatholicTV producer Kate Andrews, our production team, and all of us here at CatholicTV have been working hard to get this show off the ground. It certainly doesn't hurt that Rachel Balducci, Danielle Bean, and Carolee McGrath are the hosts of this great new show.

We're excited to show you interviews with Lisa Hendey, Martin Sheen & Emilio Estevez, pro life activist Carmel Waters and more, and provide you with the insight and practical advice of our great hosts. We also think it's important to share the experiences of our viewers, so we want to hear from you via our Facebook Polls and Questions.

To stay updated on the show and on opportunities to offer feedback and share your experiences, connect with us on Twitter and Facebook:

Honoring Veterans Day

On Veteran’s Day,  Major Gary Good, a strategic planner for the US Military, will be featured on This is the Day.

Major Good, a strategic planner for the military, was deployed to Afghanistan, leaving his assignment at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. It was while he was deployed that he found God and entered the Church.

Major Good has commended the exceptional job of the Catholic Priests who serve in the military, granting the opportunity to build the faith while in a combat zone.

Major Good comes from a family of several veterans, so we would like to honor Major Good and his family, as well as all who have served in the United States Armed Forces this Veteran’s Day.

Tune in to This is the Day at 10:30AM (ET) on Veterans Day to see Major Gary Good. As always, you can watch it live right here: http://CatholicTV.com
