Praying at Home

Resources for staying close to Christ when you can’t go to Mass

Catholic Spirit Radio/EWTN

Whether you listen to“Spirit Radio 89.5” app for cell phones and tablets or listen online at catholicspiritradio.com, you know that there are four listening options. One of them is “Catholic Spirit Radio Classics.”

Effective this Wednesday, March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation, EWTN Radio Classics will become EWTN Radio Essentials, broadcasting exclusively the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Prayers, and Devotionals.

The Mass will air every other hour between the hours of 8AM ET and midnight each day with Rosaries, Divine Mercy Chaplets and other devotional content mixed in.

These changes will remain in effect until such time as the crisis is reasonably curtailed.
