Where to watch Catholic Mass on TV

Hello, my name is Father Scott Donahue.

I have the privilege of being the president of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. And one of the things that I most enjoy about my ministry here at the home is our TV Mass. The TV Mass provides spiritual nourishment for those who are at home, or in hospitals, or in nursing homes who otherwise do not have access to the prayer of the church. It is a critical and it’s a beautiful ministry. And I keep hearing from many of you how important this mass is for your own spiritual nourishment.

It’s a privilege to be a part of a community here at Mercy Home that provides this offering, this gift, this wonderful service to you. We depend on you. I’m terribly grateful for you.

And please know that you constantly are in my prayers, in my thoughts, and at mass here at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. Folks, once again, thank you for your generosity. And I want you to know that you can go online and see our most recent Sunday Mass homily.

Enjoy it and may God bless you.

Since 1992, Sunday Mass at Mercy Home has been Chicago’s very own Catholic Mass on TV. That year the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, Archbishop of Chicago, called on Mercy Home to launch a televised Mass program. Sunday Mass family has now grown to 70,000 faithful viewers who share in the Eucharist every Sunday, and is Chicagoland’s most popular televised Catholic Mass. Our Mass is filmed on location in the Our Lady of Mercy Chapel at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.

Televised or live-streamed, online Mass viewing is an opportunity for the faithful to remain connected to the Sacrifice of the Mass during this difficult time.
