On St Patrick's Day, on RTÉ One television & RTÉ Radio 1 Extra/Longwave 252, Fr Peter Rodgers OFM, a member of the Capuchin community in Dublin's Church Street, will celebrate Mass live in the chapel studio of Kairos Communications, Maynooth, Co KIldare. 

He will be with members of the Schola Cantorum of St Finian's College, Mullingar, directed by Gerard Lillis. The same group will then celebrate Mass in Irish on Raidio na Gaeltachta at noon

Christian worship will then continue to air on RTÉ TV, Radio and Online at 11am every Sunday and, of course, RTÉ will mark the major liturgies of Holy Week and Easter on all platforms.

Viewers and listeners can also find on our website rte.ie/spirit a link to churchservices.tv, which offers live daily video streams from over 150 churches across Ireland and the UK, so you can connect with worship in a church near you.

Regrettably, RTÉ One's coverage of Hindu Holi festivities this week was cancelled, because community events were themselves called off. Nonetheless, we hope, in the coming days, to offer religious content for members of the Muslim community who are unable to attend Friday's noon Jummah prayers. 

On Sunday 5th April, at 17.35, RTÉ One will be marking Passover, or Pesach, with the Irish Jewish community and, on 11th April, at the same time, RTÉ One will celebrate Vaisakhi with Ireland's Sikhs, even though their colourful public festive gatherings have been curtailed.
