IRONDALE, Ala., March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network announces the launch of EWTN Radio Essentials.
"To assist listeners struggling to cope with the closing of so many churches due to the coronavirus pandemic, EWTN has temporarily transformed EWTN Radio Classics into EWTN Radio Essentials, a one-stop source for Mass and devotions," said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. "On this channel, listeners will have the opportunity hear Mass eight times per day beginning at 8 a.m. ET. As people of faith know, prayer is what will get us all through this difficult time."
Between Masses, listeners can join in various devotions, such as the Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Angelus, St. Michael's Chaplet, and more. The schedule also includes programs featuring the wisdom of spiritual icons like Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Father Groeschel, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, Fr. George Rutler, and, of course, Mother Angelica.
You can find both EWTN Global Catholic Radio and EWTN Radio Essentials by downloading the EWTN app and clicking on "Live Streams" and then scrolling down to either "Listen Live – EWTN Radio" or "Listen Live – Radio Essentials." Alternatively, you can access the channel online, by going to www.ewtn.com, clicking on Radio at the top of the page, then "Listen Live," and finally click on "United States" where you will see a drop-down menu with "Radio Essentials."
