The eighth General Congregation of the College of Cardinals has decided that the Conclave will begin on Tuesday, 12 March 2013.  A Pro Eligendo Romano Pontifice Mass will be celebrated in St. Peter's Basilica in the morning. In the afternoon the cardinals will enter into the Conclave.
Salt + Light will be broadcasting and live streaming events surrounding the conclave and the announcement of the new pope. Coverage will include the Pro Eligendo Romano Pontifice Mass held with the College of Cardinals before they enter the conclave and procession of cardinals into the Sistine Chapel. Finally there will be live coverage each time the cardinals vote to see whether or not white smoke rises from the famous chimney atop the Sistine Chapel.
