A Message From a 100.3 FM Listener
A listener to our local Catholic radio station recently described the station as a “lifeline” and the radio programming as providing “so much good information about our faith from good sources. It gives me strength and hope, and it does the same for so many others who I listen to when they call in to the programs that take live callers.” If you haven’t yet discovered 100.3 FM, tune in to the programming which runs 24/7. If you are already a listener, encourage your friends and family to share in this resource for personal faith enrichment and tool for evangelization.
