First Catholic TV Channel Launched in Kyiv
On December 8, Archbishop Petro Malchuk, Ordinary of the Kyiv-Zhytomyr Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church, launched the first Catholic TV channel in Kyiv, the Television of the Eternal Word EWTN. From now on, the viewers of Volia company will be able to watch EWTN on TV in Kyiv.
“Today, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, we have launched Catholic television. As of today, we are able to broadcast only in Kyiv, but we pray to God that it will be possible to watch EWTN TV in other cities of Ukraine as well. We need prayer and support of many people for that,” noted the Director of the Catholic Media Center, Fr. Pavlo Vyshkovskyi.
“The Catholic TV channel EWTN in Kyiv will be mostly an English-language one for a number of objective reasons, but the Catholic Media Center will make effort to ensure that viewers will be able to watch dubbed programs in the morning, before work and in the evening. Increase of the number of Ukrainian-language programs will depend on the number of English-speaking volunteers who can help with translations,” reads the report of the Catholic Media Center.
