Broadcast on WGN-TV and at MercyHome.org brings Easter celebration to ailing and homebound
Chicago, IL: Archbishop Blaise Cupich will celebrate the Easter Sunday edition of the Sunday Mass at Mercy Home on WGN-TV 9. The special hour-long Mass will air at 9:30 a.m. March 27 and will be available online at MercyHome.org later the same morning. As it does every week, the Sunday Mass at Mercy Home makes the sacrament of Mass available to those who are unable to attend in person due to age, illness, or disability.
“Bringing the Mass to those who may otherwise not have access to it has been an privilege and an important part of our ministry at Mercy Home for Boys and Girls for 24 years,” said Mercy Home President Fr. Scott Donahue, who is the principle celebrant of the weekly televised Mass. “And once again, we are grateful to Archbishop Cupich for celebrating this special Mass on the Church’s holiest day, Easter Sunday, and bringing our viewers the good news of Christ’s glorious resurrection.”
In 1992 at the request of Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Mercy Home launched its televised Sunday Mass. Every Sunday morning, 60,000 faithful viewers tune in to share in the Eucharist. Sunday Mass at Mercy Home, which is filmed on location in the Our Lady of Mercy Chapel at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls in and broadcast on WGN in Chicago, is a source of spiritual nourishment for those who are unable to leave their homes because of age or ailment to attend Mass.
As an enhancement to this religious ministry, Mercy Home recently began posting homilies from the Mass, and in special cases like the Palm Sunday and Easter Masses, rebroadcasts of entire episodes on its web site. Now, caregivers and Catholics who may be unable to attend Mass in person can still share in the Mass by visiting MercyHome.org/Sunday-mass.
