CatholicTV is America’s Catholic television network. CatholicTV strives to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and the fullness of Catholic tradition through TV and new media. The network does this first and foremost through the daily broadcast of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The 24/7 channel also provides other prayerful, educational, and inspirational programming.
The CatholicTV Network resembles other television networks in various ways and degrees. It is a platform for artistic expression — not for profit from advertising revenue, but for bringing souls of regular people closer to Jesus Christ. It is a Catholic network, not in its dry catechesis and apologetics, but in its vibrant and varied representation of Catholic faith and life. It is a “network,” not only in its extension over various delivery systems (cable, satellite, IPTV, Roku, Internet), but also in the networking of a community of faith, a virtual parish.
