Televised Mass to the Homebound


On Palm Sunday, March 24, and Easter Sunday, March 31, the Diocese’s televised Sunday Mass for the homebound will air for a full hour, with an Easter Mass celebrated by Bishop Frank J. Dewane. The hour-long Palm Sunday and Easter Masses will air at 12:00 p.m. on the CW Network in Sarasota, Manatee, Hardee, Desoto, and Highland counties, and at 10:30 a.m. on WFTX-TV Fox 4 in Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte, Glades, and Desoto counties.
If you are homebound, please join us on Palm Sunday, and Easter Sunday, via the televised Mass and know that you are loved by your brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the Diocese of Venice, and you remain a vibrant part of our faith community.
The Sunday Mass is offered on television for the homebound every Sunday, and is also always available here, on our website.
Please see below for more information, including a local channel guide.


The Sunday Mass on Television is an outreach of the Department of Communications and is supported by the donations of viewers. This outreach serves those who, for reasons outside of their control, are unable to attend Sunday Mass in one of the parishes of the Diocese. For many homebound individuals, this outreach reminds them that they are loved by their brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the Diocese of Venice, and that they remain a vibrant and loved part of our faith community.
