FOR OUR TELEVISION MASS VIEWERS: Please note that the video production equipment that generates the text that is seen on the screen (priest and lecture names, etc.) during the television Mass has failed. Unfortunately, it is an expensive piece of equipment and is being evaluated for repair or replacement. It is old and may not be repairable, in which case we would need to purchase new equipment and then train staff on the new technology before we would be able to place it in service. At this time, we do not have an estimated date for when this will be fixed. We thank you for your patience.

After 17 years of "Good News" programming, production of Crossroads Magazine™ came to an end in November 2011.  With limited and dwindling resources, Father John had to make a difficult decision to cancel Crossroads Magazine™, another victim of the poor U.S. economy.  The final program was broadcast on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. on WCCT-TV Channel 20, and presented a retrospective look at 17 years of "Good News" programming.

But, after nearly a year off air, it was decided that there are so many good works happening in and outside the Archdiocese of Hartford, that we brought back Crossroads Magazine™ in a mini sized version, for now.  Hopefully, we'll be able to garner enough financial support to bring Crossroads Magazine back to its original time and length bringing you the people, personalities and events making news around the Crossroads of Connecticut.  Until then, it will be periodically sharing the same time slot as That's the Spirit.

If you have questions or comments about Crossroads Magazine™ please e-mail us at programming (no attachments please).

About Crossroads Magazine™


There are good things happening every day in our neighborhoods and communities.  Relationships are being built through caring, concerned, self-giving people whose good news stories are not necessarily being told on commercial television news.

Crossroads Magazine tells these stories.

God is met through the ordinary and extraordinary people we meet on the crossroads of life.  In school, at work, while shopping for groceries; anywhere... anytime... on any crossroad, you can meet people who bring a touch of the presence of God.

These are the stories we tell.

Crossroads Magazine™, is hosted by Father John Gatzak and produced by the Office of Radio & Television.  A "Good News" magazine-style program broadcast every other Sunday in rotation with That's The Spirit. This program focuses on the good things that are going on in our neighborhoods and the people who are making them happen. It is ecumenical in nature but maintains a Catholic perspective, with priority given to church events on a diocesan and local parish level. It informs, enlightens, educates and entertains.
