LIVE TELEVISION BROADCAST OF DIVINE LITURGY
FROM HOLY TRINITY CATHEDRAL TO BEGIN FEB. 3RD
NEW YORK, NY - Live weekly television broadcast of the Sunday Divine
Liturgy will begin Sunday, February 3rd from the Archdiocesan Cathedral of
the Holy Trinity in New York City. The long-anticipated broadcast of the
Liturgy can be seen from 10:30 a.m. to 12 Noon every Sunday on National
Greek Television (NGTV) The Greek Channel; Time Warner Digital Channel 509
in Manhattan, Staten Island, Mt. Vernon, NY and Bergen County, NJ and
Channel 80 in Queens and Long Island, NY.
"We are pleased to announce, said Cathedral Dean Father Robert
Stephanopoulos, "that Holy Trinity Cathedral has a unique opportunity to
achieve another major milestone in its illustrious 110 year history, the
live television broadcast of the weekly Sunday Liturgy and major religious
holy days beginning with Good Friday, Easter and Christmas."
Negotiations have been completed with National Greek Television to
broadcast to a television audience of over one million viewers in the
greater metropolitan area with the potential to reach millions nationwide.
It is expected that in the near future the Liturgy will also be broadcast
live on the Internet.
