The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Casting out our NET

As I mentioned several weeks ago, I’ve embarked on a new chapter of my professional life, as News Director for our diocesan cable channel. On December 8th, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, (and the feast day of our diocese) what has been known for over 40 years as The Prayer Channel will be reborn as NET (New Evangelization Television.)


I’m pleased to report that things are humming along, and invite those interested to take a peek at our new (and still-under-construction) website. And for more, you can visit our online media kit. (Gotta love the sound of the pages turning!) Both give a sense of the flavor and personality of the channel.

It starts next Monday. Bishop DiMarzio’s mass at our cathedral that day will be dedicated to marking this important event — along with the holy day, of course! — and Your Humble Blogger will be serving as deacon.

Stay tuned. Once we’re up and have live streaming of the programming, I’ll let you know. Meantime, if you visit this link, you can watch a continuous short video that previews the channel.

The “Breaking Bread” video made me want to go out to Press 195 and try one of those sandwiches! Unfortunately, I’m 1,500 miles away, so I’ll have to do it another time!That’s quite a captivating website. Congratulations as well best wishes with the project!

This is cool that people are able to receive the business loans and that opens up completely new possibilities.
