WATERTOWN -- On Sept. 15 and Sept. 16, the CatholicTV Network held its 26th Telethon, raising over $300,000 from generous viewers in the United States and abroad. This year's telethon was hosted by Bishop Robert Reed, Jay Fadden, and Kevin Nelson, and featured acts by talented performers, including singers from St. Bridget's Parish in Maynard; comedy duo Nun and Nunner; and renowned musicians Eric Genuis and Stephanie Scogna.
