Exclusive: EWTN To Air National Catholic Prayer Breakfast
Three Stellar Speakers To Address Threats to Religious Freedom
Irondale, AL – Recent events have made this week’s “National Catholic Prayer Breakfast” the most important in our collective lifetimes – and you will only be able to view it on the EWTN Global Catholic Network.
People of faith know they are faced with a dire situation not only in the U.S. but around the world and the theme of the breakfast – Religious Liberty: Threatened At Home & Abroad – reflects that fact. The two-hour televised event will take place at Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. and will be attended by delegates from around the world, who will meet for prayer and discussion.
Tune into EWTN television at 9 a.m. ET, Friday, April 20 (or 1 p.m. ET, Saturday, April 21, for the encore) or to the EWTN Radio Network at 9 a.m. ET, Saturday, April 21, to hear about the threats to our religious freedom from the perspective of three luminaries of the Catholic faith.
Archbishop Francis A. Chullikatt, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations and former Apostolic Nuncio to Iraq and Jordan, will deliver the keynote address. Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson will precede him as the guest speaker, while Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, Superior General of the Sisters of Life, will end the program with a reflection.
