By 1976, Mother Angelica had written 50 booklets and recorded 150 audio cassette teaching tapes.  But that was only the beginning of what the Lord would do through her. 

When Mother Angelica was given the opportunity to make video tape programs for television, she realized the impact television could have in spreading the Faith. Converting a planned garage behind the monastery into a television studio, Mother Angelica founded the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN).  EWTN began airing programs on August 15, 1981 via satellite to cable companies and home satellite dishes.

In 1992, Mother Angelica founded WEWN to broadcast Catholic programs world-wide via short-wave radio, inspired by the prophecy of Revelation 14:6 — "Then I saw another Angel, flying high overhead, sent to announce the Good News of Eternity to all who live on the earth, every nation, race, language, and tribe."

Pray the The Holy Rosary with Mother Angelica and the Nuns of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery.

EWTN - Eternal Word Television Network EWTN 25 Years Eternal Word Television Network
  • As Mother Angelica has reminded us so often, the history of EWTN "isn't what we've done, it's how we've done it." Giving all the credit to Divine Providence, Mother didn't have a business plan when she powered up the first transmitter in 1981.
  • Given its humble beginnings, few predicted EWTN would survive, let alone become the world’s largest religious media Network. With no television experience and $200 in the bank, Mother Angelica began EWTN in her monastery garage. Over the years, with trust in God's Providence, EWTN hasGod's Ray grown to reach millions of souls around the world, bringing them the Eternal Word.
  • During those first few years of EWTN, many in the secular world did not know what to make of the first Catholic TV Network. Headlines from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal called EWTN "A Heavenly Network," and "A New TV Habit." But as the news media and the Network’s growing number of devoted viewers soon realized, EWTN was not just another channel. It was and is so much more.
  • As more visitors began coming to the Monastery and to the television network, Mother Angelica realized the need for holy priests to hear Confessions, celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and give spiritual talks. In response to this need, she founded the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, an Order of priests and brothers who live a Franciscan, Eucharistic life dedicated to bringing souls back to the Church.
  • In 1987 EWTN began broadcasting 24 hours-a-day, with a new emphasis on live events. As the Network began to cover papal visits and other Church events, EWTN made a commitment to provide extensive coverage of ceremonies from the Vatican that no other television network was willing to do. The Network also added to its lineup beatifications and canonizations, live daily Mass and holy day events from major shrines around the world.
