The weekly television Mass produced by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is moving. Fox 8 television has changed the Sunday broadcast time to one hour earlier -- 5 a.m. -- on Sunday mornings, instead of 6 a.m., starting on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020. According to Fox 8, this change has been made so they can comply with federal mandates involving children’s programming.
The TV Mass can also be accessed on demand starting Saturday evening and running throughout Sunday on the Diocese of Cleveland website, dioceseofcleveland.org. In addition, the Mass can be heard on the radio, on AM 1260 The Rock, at 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 10:30 a.m. on Sundays.
Radio station WINT-1330 AM airs the Mass each Sunday at 9 a.m. and Cox Communications cable subscribers can view the Mass on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. on channel 45.
The Catholic televised Mass on Fox 8 has been a staple of religious programming in Northeast Ohio for decades, cultivating a dedicated and faithful following. It is hoped that faithful viewers will continue to tune in at this new, earlier time.
