"Are You Ready for Some Football?"

Looking for something to do before the Super Bowl tomorrow? Take a peek at what Ray McKenna and Catholic Athletes for Christ have on deck for Sunday:


Faith Bowl II, produced by Family Theater Productions in conjunction with Catholic Athletes for Christ and the Knights of Columbus, will air on four Catholic broadcast outlets this Sunday, February 1.

The half-hour program is hosted by actor Chris Kramer, star of the hit Canadian TV series The Collector, and features Mark Loretta, second baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Antonio Soave, a former pro soccer player, discussing how they live their Catholic faith in the public arena.

Broadcasts on February 1:

EWTN at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST

CatholicTV, Archdiocese of Boston, at 3:30 and 8 p.m. EST, (can be viewed on their website, http://www.catholictv.org/)

Catholic Life Channel, Diocese of Baton Rouge, La., at 3:30 and 8 p.m. CST; re-broadcasts at 2:30 p.m. CST on Feb. 2; 9 p.m. Feb. 6 and 2 p.m. Feb. 7

Salt + Light Television Catholic network in Canada at 5 and 9 p.m. EST (can be viewed on their website, http://www.saltandlighttv.org/); re-broadcast at 1 a.m. Feb. 2

For those of us in Packerland, the best choice would be to tune in to EWTN at 4:30 PM on Sunday. Last year's production was quite impressive -- this year's program will feature Antonio Soave who has already offered sports and spirituality workshop programs in the Green Bay Diocese and he promises to be back soon.

Those of us who know and have the privilege of working with Ray McKenna and the Catholic Athletes for Christ are grateful for Ray and his tireless efforts to bring the Holy Eucharist (literally) to any number of athletes at every level of sport. He has been responsible for arranging for Mass to be celebrated in any number of arenas and athletic complexes throughout the country.
