Upcoming Programs
Evangelization and Respect Life Month
Producer John Feister and I attended the North American Institute for Catholic Evangelization, held here in Cincinnati in August. The theme was “Evangelizing God’s People in a Culture of Diversity,” and the five-day event featured a number of challenging presenters from a variety of cultural backgrounds. We will share our experiences with your listeners. John interviewed Bishop Gustavo García-Siller, an auxiliary bishop of Chicago, who preached with great passion about our mission to spread the person and message of Jesus. Producer Judy Zarick spoke with an Institute attendee, pediatrician Philomena Dias, about working with African Americans and Hispanics through her parish in Indianapolis.
Keeping up with current events also feeds our radio ministry. This past year has seen the debate over the use of embryonic stem cells continue as Congress considered legislation that would fund stem-cell research. John will bring you a conversation with Richard Doerflinger, the USCCB Deputy Director of the Secretariat for Pro-life Activities. As we celebrate Respect Life Month in our Church, Dr. Doerflinger’s presentation is timely information on an important issue.
We’ll keeping working to keep your listeners current and inspired!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
