Parishes are able to broadcast their divine services live online for those who are unable to attend in person. Broadcasts are in the Adobe Flash format with simultaneous broadcasts to mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android phones and tablets. Since this service began in 1997, thousands of liturgical services and hundreds of educational classes have been broadcast over the internet.
