Several years in the making, yesterday marked the official launch of the West Coast broadcasting center for Irondale, Ala.-based EWTN, the Eternal World Television Network. A prayer service, celebration and blessing was held in the Cultural Center at Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove.
The network’s first “West Coast” show was recorded in the new studio on the eighth floor of the Tower of Hope on the Christ Cathedral campus. The first guests included Diocese of Orange Bishop Kevin Vann and EWTN Global Catholic Network Chairman and CEO Michael Warsaw. Future programming will include Mass and stories of faith that are interest to the network’s global audience.
“As we transform the Christ Cathedral campus into a dynamic and inspirational center of Catholic worship and outreach, we are blessed to partner with EWTN to share our community’s energy and faithful witness with the world. EWTN’s partnership will profoundly benefit our Church, enabling us to share the love of Christ with millions across the world in multiple languages from the Cathedral campus, here in Orange County,” said Bishop Vann.
