.- EWTN has announced it will hold its 2010 Family Celebration on October 9-10 at the Canton Civic and Cultural Center in Canton, Ohio, the hometown of Mother Angelica.

The event is free and will feature speakers including EWTN’s “World Over” anchor (and Mother Angelica’s best-selling biographer) Raymond Arroyo; “Journey Home” host Marcus Grodi; Dr. Ray Guarendi, host of EWTN Radio Network’s “The Doctor Is In;” and Mother Assumpta Long of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, whose order hosts the EWTN children’s catechetical series, “Truth in the Heart.”

“Bookmark” host Doug Keck will emcee the event.

In addition, participants of the event on Saturday night will have the opportunity to take part in a special live show celebrating Mother Angelica’s life and legacy, which will feature all of the speakers as well as select members of the audience.

EWTN President & CEO Michael P. Warsaw will also be present for the popular “Family Talk,” along with Deacon Bill Steltemeier, Father Anthony and Father Joseph Mary Wolfe.

Children at the Family Celebration will be entertained by “Roamin Catholic” host Rob Wahl and his sidekick, Pete the Penguin, as well as Brother Leo from “Hey Brother Leo.” All will be located at the “EWTN Faith Factory” booth throughout the course of the weekend.

Doors will open at 8 a.m. for the celebration, which will include opportunities for confession and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
