IRONDALE, AL (March 19, 2013) - The EWTN Global Catholic Network will air the Mass of Divine Mercy live from The National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass. at 1 p.m. ET, Sunday, April 7 with an encore at 1 a.m. ET, Monday, April 8.

You'll also hear the dramatic conversion story of Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, now a member of the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, but formerly a high school dropout who was kicked out of a foreign country, institutionalized twice, and thrown in jail multiple times. His story will probably move you to purchase his bestselling 2010 book, "No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy" ( and perhaps his latest release, "Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest,", which he will also be discussing.

Finally, you'll hear from Mark Fanders, an associate lay member of the Marians, who will discuss the Marians' important new initiative to place Divine Mercy images in every home and parish during the Year of Faith. (For Divine Mercy items, please go to and type "Divine Mercy" in the search box.)
