The CatholicTV Network to air 2017 Telethon Sept. 15-16

WATERTOWN -- On Sept. 15-16 the CatholicTV Network will hold its 26th Telethon, featuring music, entertainment, highlights from CatholicTV programs, and special guests. Each year, CatholicTV holds the Telethon as its most important fundraiser to support its ministry of providing programming that inspires and educates Catholics in the U.S. and around the world.

The Telethon, which is held over two days, will be hosted by CatholicTV's Bishop Robert Reed, Jay Fadden, and Kevin Nelson. Members of the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Daughters of America will be among the volunteers answering phones and taking pledges from viewers all over the country.

Reflecting on this important event for the Network, President/CEO of iCatholic Media, Inc., Bishop Reed, said, "The CatholicTV Telethon comes around every year, but every year it's different and great! Without the support and the many gifts, large and small from so many wonderful viewers, we would not be able to continue in our critical mission to the Church across the nation."

The 2017 CatholicTV Telethon will air Friday, Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Viewers can tune in on cable,, Roku, Apple TV or mobile devices.
