Sixth in a Bishop's Appeal Series

By Jeff Kurowski
Compass Assistant Editor

Some of Fr. Dave Kasperek's favorite letters come from people he has never met. Although he hasn't spoken to them in person, the pastor at Ss. Edward & Isidore Parish in Flintville, has made an important connection with them through the weekly television Mass, which airs at 5:30 a.m., Sunday mornings on WBAY-TV.

"I've never had TV Mass without feedback," he said. "I get nice letters from people who say 'I saw you on television.' It is such a marvelous way to reach out to people. If I had the time, I would do every TV Mass."

The TV Mass, supported by donations to the annual Bishop's Appeal, is produced by the diocese in cooperation with WBAY. Tony Kuick, diocesan director of Communications, directs the broadcasts. Anissa Lodzinski, associate director of Worship for the diocese, serves as liturgical coordinator for the TV Mass, which dates back to when the Norbertines owned the station from 1953 to 1976.   Full story ...
