Broadcasters: Catholic Radio Program for Lent
Franciscan Radio is pleased to announce a new half-hour offering, “Lenten Radio Retreat,” which is available, free of charge, from the Catholic Communication Campaign. There are six English and six Spanish editions of the show—one for each Sunday of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1. Each episode, hosted by one of our 12 bishop-retreat guides, features a short reflection, music, question-and-answer segment, and several prayers led by the bishop.
Free broadcast master copies of the show on disc in WAV format are available from the Catholic Communication Campaign of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Call 1-202-541-3204 for details.
