2016-03-28

Mother Angelica, foundress of the EWTN Global Catholic Network, died at 5 p.m. CDT, Easter Sunday, March 27, surrounded by the Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama.

She spoke in the media about God and the Catholic Church in a new way: On August 15 1981, she launched EWTN into the homes of 60,000 viewers for four hours a day. Today, it has grown to encompass over 230 million viewers in over 140 countries. 

In addition to the Eternal Word Television Network and Our Lady of the Angels Monastery, Mother Angelica also founded the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, a religious community of men based in Irondale.
