IRONDALE, Ala. (EWTN) – EWTN will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fatima at its 2017 Family Celebration Sept. 9-10 at the DCU Convention Center in Worcester, Mass. Headliners include Father Mitch Pacwa (“EWTN Live”), Marcus Grodi (“The Journey Home”) and many other EWTN television and radio favorites.
In addition, Michael P. Warsaw EWTN chairman and CEO, will host a "Family Talk" with EWTN president Doug Keck (“EWTN Bookmark”), EWTN chaplain Father Joseph Mary Wolfe, the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word and more. Keck will also emcee the event.
“My favorite part of every celebration is meeting our EWTN family members from near and far,” Warsaw said. “This celebration is our thank you to them for their love and support throughout the years.”
Besides hearing the headlining talks, guests will also have the opportunity to be part of a studio audience for a taping of a special “EWTN Family Celebration Live Show,” celebrate Mass with Worcester Bishop Robert J. McManus and EWTN’s friars and meet EWTN hosts and authors while browsing the EWTN Religious Catalogue Shop.
Plus, there will be plenty of opportunity for adoration and confession, and children will get a chance to meet some of their favorite characters from “EWTN Faith Factory.” EWTN Radio will broadcast live on-site throughout the weekend and staff from the National Catholic Register will be on hand to answer questions. Visitors will have an opportunity to join EWTN’s mission of evangelization by becoming an EWTN media missionary.
