New season of Defending Life premieres this week on EWTN


Priests for Life



NEW YORK - Father Stephen Imbarrato, Priests for Life’s newest pastoral associate, will make his debut as co-host of Defending Life, which will begin its new season on EWTN this week. Priests for Life Executive Director Janet Morana will return as co-host for this 29th season.

The show will air at 3 a.m. ET on Wednesdays – 30 minutes later than its previous slot - and at 11 p.m. ET on Thursdays.

Topics to be covered during this Jubilee Year of Mercy include the link between Divine Mercy and the sanctity of life; how Sister Faustina became Saint Faustina; Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion; abortion after rape; fathers who lost children to abortion; fetal pain; ministering to Latino youth and the vital role of pregnancy resource centers.

“We have a lineup of dynamic guests this season to help us explore these vital topics,” Mrs. Morana said. Guests will include Charles Donovan, president of the Lozier Institute; Angelina Steenstra, national coordinator of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign Canada; Thomas Glessner of the National Institute of Family & Life Advocates; Father Agostino Torres, CFR, and Father Seraphim Michalenko, M.I.C.

Father Imbarrato is a priest of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe who has been a pro-life activist since before his ordination in 2005. While working in parish ministry, he also founded two pro-life organizations in Albuquerque before being given permission by his bishop last year to do full-time pro-life work with Priests for Life.

“It’s very exciting to me to be able to reach EWTN’s millions of viewers with a pro-life message that also emphasizes our Catholic faith,” he said. “I feel very blessed to be sharing the set with Janet Morana and the great folks at EWTN.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, who oversees program content, stated, “I am very proud that Defending Life is the longest running, farthest reaching show about abortion anywhere on television. We know viewers will come away from each episode with information they can use in their own pro-life activism.”

Along with its television hours, Defending Life can be heard at EWTN radio, on Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. ET and Sundays at 5 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.
