Each year, EWTN brings special programming to its viewers during the Lenten season, culminating in celebrations on Easter Sunday. This year, we have planned a series of specials and live programming that will touch the hearts of our viewers during this special time of year.
During the coming weeks, you may see posters featuring our programming in local parishes. If you would like posters for your facilities or other locations, please contact your regional manager; phone numbers and email addresses can be found at www.ewtn.info.
