7News To Broadcast St Mary’s Cathedral Easter Services

As social distancing measures continue to take place across the country, 7NEWS will broadcast nationally St Mary’s Cathedral Sydney’s Easter services across Channel 7, Prime 7 and live-streamed on 7plus.

This includes broadcast of The Lord’s Passion on Good Friday, Friday 10 April, from 3pm and Easter Sunday Mass, Sunday 12 April, from 10.30am.

Commenting on the broadcast, director of 7NEWS Sydney, Jason Morrison, said: “Easter is the most sacred time of the year on the liturgical calendar.

“With public gatherings and church services currently closed in response to the pandemic, the 7NEWS team is proud to help the Church to bring these important services to homes across the country.”

Catholic Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP said he was grateful to 7NEWS for recognising the importance for Catholics and others across the nation to be able to participate in the commemoration of Good Friday and the celebration of Easter Sunday Mass.

“These national broadcasts mean people of all ages and no matter where they live or are currently isolating, will now be able to participate in the Mass,” Archbishop Fisher said.

“I know it will be especially welcome news to those living in nursing homes and aged care facilities who will especially be feeling the sting of separation from family over Easter, due to the restrictions on visits, and whose connection to their faith remains strong.

“All Australians are experiencing hardship at this time as we seek to limit the spread of the Coronavirus and many people are being asked to make great sacrifices such as our health professionals working long hours and risking their own health.

“Another sacrifice for people of faith is being unable to gather physically to celebrate the sacraments or even to spend time praying in a church. But by televising these services, it means we can spiritually come together to maintain our life of prayer and worship and strengthen our communion with one another.”
