About Us

The Catholic Telemedia Network is committed to providing curriculum-based instructional media resources that support the educators of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens. We began over 42 years ago as a founding member of The Catholic Television Network. Presently, our services include a library of on-demand instructional media, online course work, and Sprint Cellular internet service. As the use of technology in the classroom changes and becomes ever more integral, you can be sure to rely on the many upgraded services of CTN. We pledge to provide relevant, engaging resources that are valued by both teacher and student.

The Catholic Telemedia Network is a service of DeSales Media Group, Inc., which provides communications and technology services to the Diocese of Brooklyn and beyond.

Clara Esposito
Traffic Manager
Clara has recently retired after over 30 years of dedicated service to the teachers and schools of the Diocese of Brooklyn. She managed all the administrative backend logistics for CTN services. Those of you who watch NET TV, formerly the Prayer Channel, have done so through the result of Clara’s management of on-air TV station logs. She will be missed!
