KALA-FM to Broadcast Mass Live on Sundays
DAVENPORT, Iowa – KALA Radio, a broadcasting station owned and operated by St. Ambrose University, will host Catholic Mass over the air, on 88.5 FM, every Sunday at noon, until further notice. This is a collaboration with St. Ambrose Campus Ministry.
Rev. Thomas Hennen, St. Ambrose University Chaplin, will be the celebrant.
The idea to host mass over the air came amidst the cancellation of all public masses in the Diocese of Davenport due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Many parishes in the diocese, and across the nation, have begun streaming Sunday services online. Since not everyone has access to the internet, this weekly KALA broadcast offers another medium Catholics can utilize to connect with their faith in this unprecedented time.
KALA-FM can be listened to over the air at 88.5 on the FM dial. Online streaming is also available via TuneIn – just search for KALA.
