And "oh by the way," our parish Mass is broadcast over Portsmouth Public Media TV (PPMTV) cable channel 98, which is available to all Portsmouth Comcast cable subscribers, Sundays at 10:00AM and repeated Tuesdays/Thursdays at 7:00PM. Note that this is a videotape of the prior Saturday evening Mass at IC, (i.e. NOT yesterday`s Mass), but it still helps our homebound "stay connected" to the parish.
