Upcoming Programs
Lent 2007
American Catholic Radio continues our special series to enhance your listeners’ appreciation of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and its connection to the Lenten season. In the “Living Faith,” Judy Zarick interviews Shawn Reedy, one of the Elect preparing for Baptism at the Easter Vigil, and Jane Bach, a convert from Judaism, who is now a member of her parish’s RCIA team. The “Catholic Treasures” for these episodes relate to the Third and Fourth Sundays of Lent, when special ritual prayers are offered for the Elect during Sunday Mass. And in “Exploring Our Faith,” John Feister talks with two Catholic authors about two of the pillars of Lenten practice, almsgiving and fasting.
May God continue to bless your Lenten observance!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
