Easter On The Airwaves

Annual Easter Triduum programming includes Palm Sunday Mass, Our Lord’s Supper Mass on Holy Thursday, The Passion of Our Lord Service on Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and the Easter Sunday Mass.

Special content has been added to the airwaves in Western Alaska this year, as the faithful adapt to socially distant services. An English translation of Pope Francis’ special Urbi et Orbi blessing was recorded by Fr. Ross Tozzi, KNOM’s Board Vice President, and broadcast.

A few days later, listeners joined the faithful of the world in a day of prayer and fasting for the end of the coronavirus epidemic. Fr. Ross’ “Homilies for the Homebound” also debuted on the airwaves.
