Discipleship Spurred On By Televised Masses

During the peak of the pandemic, The Catholic Foundation served as the presenting sponsor of the Diocese of Dallas televised Masses in English and Spanish. That support helped to maintain community when churches were closed, people were unable to attend a nearby church and people were invited to “pray in place.”

To maintain community in the pandemic and allow people to “pray in place,” the Foundation served as the presenting sponsor of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas’ broadcast of a Spanish Mass on Univision and an English Mass on KDFI-TV every week from Palm Sunday 2020 through the end of 2022.

Foundation donors Mary Lynn and Fred Bangs supported the cause saying, “We felt really drawn to the Foundation during the pandemic. We contributed to the televised Masses in part because that’s how we attended.”
