From Christendom to Apostolic Mission helps us understand that we are living in a new cultural situation: no longer in Christendom, where the momentum of culture will naturally help people move toward Christ and his Church, but in a post-Christendom culture that requires a mindset of Apostolic Mission to counteract the influence of culture to help people know, love and follow Jesus and his Gospel.

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.
