“Mother Angelica was well known to countless individuals in the Diocese of Scranton through her founding and frequent presence on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), carried by our CTV: Catholic Television station. She was truly a pioneer in helping to spread the faith across the globe and we are grateful for her good work.”
