According to the media representative of the SACBC:

"Important announcement!

The Holy Father's celebration of Midnight Mass to be broadcast on SABC 3.

Dear Friends,

The Office for Communication and Media is happy to announce that the SABC has agreed to broadcast the Midnight Mass from St Peter's Basilica on SABC 3.

The Broadcast will start at 11pm on the 24th of December and last for 2 hours.

The Audio feed will be in English.

We request that this is publicised in parish notices and bulletins.

This broadcast is aimed at those who cannot make Midnight mass in their own parishes due to illness, security or distance.

The SABC allocates the time on TV at no cost, but the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference, through  the Office for Communication and Media pays for the Satellite downlinks and technical fees to get the signal to the SABC. If you would like to contribute to this cost, please contact Fr Chris Townsend by email


We hope to sign a 3 year agreement with the SABC for this broadcast next year and hope to offer strap-line sponsorship opportunities.

Please note that the offices of the SACBC are closed from midday 15th December and re-open on monday 3 Jan 2011.

I wish you all the blessings of this season of Grace! Come Lord Jesus!

Fr Chris Townsend
