The Sunday TV Mass is produced and broadcast weekly by the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls. Our goal is to bring the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy to those who are homebound or shut-in and unable to join their local community for Mass. The Mass is broadcast all across South Dakota on the local CBS affiliate and many thousands participate each week.

Begins airing live here and on YouTube at 4:00pm (CDT) on Saturday’s.
Also on your local KELOLAND TV station at 10:00am (CDT) on Sunday’s.
