We need your HELP!
Archangel Gabriel Association, a non-profit religious corporation, was formed by 3 members of the Knights of Columbus from St. Therese's Church in Wrightsville Beach, for the purpose of building a low power Catholic Radio Station here in the Wilmington area.
Why are we doing this? Because we believe, along with the Holy Father and the Second Vatican Council, that Catholic Radio is a very effective and indispensable means for evangelization. It can reach people who may not want to read or may lack exposure to Catholic publications, but will be willing to eavesdrop on Catholic radio stations. Our station will have the ability to reach over 120,000 people in their cars and in their homes with the good news of Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.
What will be the benefits of Catholic radio?
- It will help Catholics, who are weak in their faith, to become better Catholics and less likely to ever leave the Church.
- It will help fallen-away Catholics come back to the Church because they will learn things they didn't know.
- It will help bring non-Catholics into the Church because they will have an opportunity to learn what we really believe as opposed to what they may have learned from other unreliable sources.
Programming: We will have a wide variety of program types obtained via satellite. Some examples are "Catholic Answers Live" a live call in show covering all aspects of the Catholic Faith, "The Teachings of Jesus Christ" with Father John Corapi, "Morning Air" with Jeff Gavins and guests speakers, talking about things relevant to everyday life as a Catholic, "The Doctor Is In" a live call in show with two Catholic psychologists, "The Journey Home" with stories of everyday people and former protestant ministers, who have converted to Catholicism. There are many more shows on the saints, scripture study, defending life, catholic book reviews, Sunday and daily mass, the rosary, etc. Our programming source is in full compliance with the Protocol for Catholic Media Programming and Media Outlets as established by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
With your help, we will be on the air Spring 2004. We need three things, your prayers, your expertise in the area of radio broadcasting, and your financial help. We need to raise approximately $ 15,000 for equipment and installation costs and another $5000 for operating expenses.
We are all called to evangelize and this project is all about saving souls for eternity. Not everyone has the ability to go out and personally evangelize, but here is your chance to change lives forever by giving us the support we need. Please prayerfully consider what you can do to help.
If you would like to make a financial contribution, please mail checks payable to, "Archangel Gabriel Association" and mail to 515 N. Green Meadow Drive, Wilmington, NC 28405.
