Archbishop Roger Mahony, a much-sought speaker by Los Angeles religious groups in his first year heading the Los Angeles Roman Catholic Archdiocese, will deliver a brief sermon at the 66th annual Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service March 30.
Mahony, who also accepted an invitation to address more than 1,000 business leaders at the YMCA's 28th annual Good Friday Breakfast March 28 at the Bonaventure, will be joined in the Bowl service program by a number of entertainment personalities, including singer Rosemary Clooney and actor Robert Guillaume.
The service will be televised this year, but by KDOC Channel 56, and not KTTV Channel 11. Ironically, KTTV received a Gold Angel award last month from Religion in Media for its coverage.
KTTV Executive Producer Ray Green said the costs of producing the program, which the station had absorbed, had risen to about $30,000 but that "there hasn't been much of an audience."
