IRONDALE, Ala. – EWTN is currently operating with a smaller staff to reduce the possibility of contacting and spreading the coronavirus. Many employees are working from home. The Network also cancelled all its live show guests for March and April. In response, the Friars immediately stepped in by increasing live televised devotions and filling in for guests. Almost daily, a friar priest is leading a TV rosary, holy hour or stations of the cross. Fr. Leonard appeared on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch and Johnnette Benkovic to address COVID-19 concerns. Fr. John Paul, Fr. Mark and Fr. Leonard did live Facebook Q&A sessions for EWTN Vatican.

  1. I want to thank all of the Friars for the truly great work that has been done for all of the years and will continue to. You have all been a tremendous gift from God for all of us. And for me personally,especially over the last 2 months you have had a BIG impact on my spiritual life. Your example and your teaching have touched us all. I will always keep you in my prayers and will contribute as best as I can always. Thanks again and GOD BLESS YOU ALL! And my feelings are the same for ALL of EWTN staff and the Poor Clares.
