BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Easter Mass services won't be happening in person this weekend, but there are several virtual options available for the millions of people in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Catholic TV, which we're blessed to have here in the Archdiocese of Boston, offers a very high quality video production of all the Easter Mass and services," Father Eric Cadin told WBZ NewsRadio.
Those who don't have the TV channel available can always tune in online. "All the services certainly can be screened on CatholicTV.org," said Father Cadin.
There will also be the chance to hear church bells ring across the city on Easter Sunday. The Archdiocese of Boston announced this week its churches will all be ringing their bells at noon "in solidarity and celebration."
“In ordinary times, church bells are a call for people to gather in prayer," said Cardinal Sean O'Malley in a statement. "This year, in the midst of the pandemic, the bells remind us that we are a community of people who need to take care of each other in the power and strength of spiritual connection and the love of the Resurrected Christ."
It's not just the Catholic church offering at-home Mass for those in quarantine. Virtually all churches will be making their services available on their websites, Facebook, and Instagram.
