Upcoming Programs
Rooted in Human Life and Living

American Catholic Radio strives to be "incarnational," in the broadest sense of that word. Because our Christian faith roots us in humanity, where God embraces us in Jesus, we strive to discover the presence of God in our world as we choose topics and themes for the program.

Our upcoming lineup is no exception, as we offer you material to renew spirit and body. Dr. Alan Schreck, who writes insightfully on Church history and Church renewal, joins us to talk about "authentic renewal" of the Church in our time. We go to Hollywood to meet a Catholic priest who's reaching out to the entertainment industry. We're joining the debate on healthcare with one of our own, Franciscan Brother Daniel Sulmasy, recently appointed to a Presidential Commission on Bioethics. We'll talk with a fitness instructor who teaches at a parish-based fitness center.

We'd like to think that our approach to faith formation follows the spirit of our patron, St. Francis of Assisi, who found evidence of God's love all around him in the world, and allowed God to lead him from created things to the sublime depths of the spirit. Our goal is more modest: to help you know your faith, so you can grow in your faith!

Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
