Worshippers by the hundreds arrived early for the outdoor service under a tent near the Big E coliseum. The mass hadn’t previously been broadcast from the Big E since 2003. There was sense of excitement among those attending the service.

Karen Williams, of Easthampton told 22News, “It’s important because it goes out to people who are home bound and it encourages people that come down to the big E to see what’s going on. They have moved back here again.”

Springfield Bishop Emeritus Timothy McDonnell celebrated the liturgy from the court of honor stage. Each Sunday morning 22News broadcasts the “chalice of salvation” mass for thousands of homebound worshippers all across western Massachusetts.
