Commission Members appear on CatholicTV

May 3, 2009

Commission members Marie Fusaro Davis and Susan Bailey appeared live on CatholicTV’s twice weekly talk show, “This Is the Day,” hosted by Jay McFadden, general manager of CatholicTV, and Fr. Robert Reed, director. CatholicTV is a ministry of the Archdiocese of Boston and has an increasing far reach. It can be accessed on via Cable TV such as Verizon (channel 296), Comcast and Sky Channel (depends on which town you live in). Although a Boston-based TV station, CatholicTV is accessible throughout the country through cable and also on their excellent website, http://www.catholictv.org, where you can watch all the programs live, or from their archives.

Marie and Susan appeared on “This Is the Day” to talk about the upcoming Gather Us In conference in November. Before making their appearance, they were taken on a tour of the station and we’d like to share some of that with you.

This is the foyer of the CatholicTV building on Chestnut Street in Watertown. The building formally was used as a convent for the Dominican Sisters and has a real chapel which is used for the Daily Mass broadcast live on CatholicTV.


The first thing you see when you come into the building is this beautiful tribute to St. Therese of Lisiuex, the patronness of Catholic TV. The tribute includes a first-class relic of the saint.

Here is a picture of the chapel where daily mass takes place. The Dominican Sisters worshipped here daily when the building housed their convent.

This is the main control room for the station.
All the programming you see on your TV originates from this area.

There were 2 interview segments during the program; Marie and Susan appeared in the second segment. In between the segments, Kevin Nelson, news anchor for CatholicTV, delivers the Catholic Newsbreak.

Jay and Fr. Reed conduct the interview with Marie (far left) and Susan, talking about the Gather Us In conference and the Commission for Women.

Marie and Susan will be appearing again on September 12 to talk more about the conference.
