Alabama-based EWTN and Boston-based CatholicTV will air the Dec. 15 Installation Mass for Bishop-designate Joseph M. Siegel live beginning at 2 p.m. CST. Discussions continue with other TV outlets regarding the live telecast, and The Message will provide more details as they become available.

The Installation Mass also will be live-streamed through the Diocese of Evansville website,

LeSEA Broadcasting of Indianapolis will handle all details associated with the live telecast, and tentative plans call for five cameras providing video from throughout St. Benedict Cathedral.

Tobin and Archbishop Charles C. Thompson in Indianapolis.
