EWTN Advent reflections schedule
The Catholic TV channel, The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) based in the US, has announced its programme of Advent talks, including one, for the fourth week, from Fr Ian Hellyer, leader of the Buckfast Ordinariate Group. Fr Hellyer was put forward to give the address by the newly established School of the Annunciation which was asked to provide four priests to give their reflections based on the Sundays of Advent Mass lections.
The school, whose patrons include the senior Vatican Cardinal, George Pell and Bishop Mark O'Toole of Plymouth, was set up in response to the Church's call for a New Evangelisation and is based at the Benedicine monastery, Buckfast Abbey. Fr Hellyer's Advent reflection, given in the style of a mission address, was filmed at the Abbey and includes a section about the Ordinariate as well as about the School of the Annunciation.
EWTN can be accessed by Satellite TV or a live stream on their website HERE
