.- The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) will hold a Family Celebration this summer.
“Following the network’s 25th anniversary celebration last summer, we heard so many wonderful comments that we decided to invite our EWTN Family back to Birmingham this year,” said EWTN president Michael P. Warsaw.
The theme of this year’s event will be the Eucharist. Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, Marcus Grodi, Mother Assumpta Long, OP, and Fr. Antoine Thomas, FJ, are among the featured speakers at the event to be held at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center, July 21-22.
The celebration is free. Participants have the opportunity to attend Mass, spend time in Eucharistic adoration, be part of a EWTN Live Show audience and meet some of the EWTN hosts.
There will be a special program for children at the on-site EWTN Faith Factory, featuring children’s programming hosts Br. Leo and the Dominican Sisters from the popular “Truth in the Heart” series. There will also be a special Children’s Holy Hour.
