WATERTOWN -- On Friday, Jan. 22, CatholicTV will air coverage of the Mass for Life and Youth Rally from the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Both the Mass and rally are part of the March for Life events.

The Mass for Life will air at and on CatholicTV at 11:00 a.m. and will be rebroadcast at 8:30 p.m. The Youth Rally will air at 4:30 p.m.

The principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass for Life will be Archbishop Donald Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. with bishops and priests from around the nation concelebrating.

On Jan 19, Father Frank Pavone will be featured in an interview on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day” which will air at 10:30 a.m. and will be rebroadcast at 8:00 p.m. Father Pavone is the founder and National Director of Priests For Life.
