On the heels of the wedding of William and Kate, the Beatification ceremony of Pope John Paul II will be streamed live on YouTube this coming Sunday.

YouTube announced on its official blog that on Sunday, May 1st, at 1:00am ET / 9:00am CET, people across the globe will be able to witness the event on YouTube’s Live browse page. The Vatican created its own channel to celebrate the late pontiff, which consists of videos that document his pontificate.

The Vatican’s own player will present the ceremony as well, which will see hundreds of thousands of people attending the Beatification ceremony in person in Saint Peter’s Square.

The live stream will end at 4:45am ET / 12:45 CET and the entire ceremony will be uploaded to the YouTube channel dedicated to the celebrant, allowing anyone a chance to witness the ceremony at their leisure.
