The Diocese of Orange will broadcast its Sunday Mass for worshipers concerned about catching the H1N1 swine flu virus.
"We have been following the situation fairly closely. We were getting the sense there was a little concern about it," said spokesman Ryan Lilyengren. "We have decided out of an abundance of caution to have it televised for people who are uncomfortable."
According to Lilyengren, the diocese will televise Mass celebrated by Msgr. Michael Heher, Diocese of Orange vicar general and moderator of the Curia, at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at St. Columban Church in Garden Grove.
The Mass will air locally on KSCI-TV (digital channel 18.7) and on DirecTV channel 2073. KSCI-TV broadcasts on Cox Cable Channel 35 and Time Warner Channel 18.
