Special Events
When EWTN began broadcasting 24 hours a day, a new emphasis on live event programs helped fill the schedule. As the network began to cover papal visits and Church events, EWTN developed a commitment to cover the Vatican. The network also added to its lineup installations of bishops and their national meetings, beatifications and canonizations, live daily Mass, and holy day events from major shrines.
