Spring Care-a-thon launches for IA Catholic Radio

Iowa Catholic Radio is launching its spring Care-A-Thon today to help support its evangelization effort. I tune in several times a day. First thing in the morning, I turn on the station while driving to work so I can hear Jon Leonetti talk about what's happening in the Church. I turn on Iowa Catholic Radio in the afternoons when I leave work and I'm heading to pick up kids after school. The singing of the Divine Mercy chaplet is prayerful, calming and helps me move from a workplace mindset to a parent mindset. By the time the kids open the car doors, I'm ready to be mom again. And I like Catholic Answers. There are always questions that are interesting on that show.

In addition to the high quality national programming, Iowa Catholic Radio has some top-notch local programming. Bishop Richard Pates has a show every Friday morning at 9, which re-airs on Fridays at 9 p.m. On Mondays, there's a new show called Man Up featuring Father Zach Kautzky and Joe Stopulos. We've got "Faith on Trial" featuring Deacon Mike Manno, and Julie Nelon and Chris Magruder's show "Catholic Women Now." The Iowa Knights of Columbus show provides news and perspectives from around the state.

Having a Catholic voice on the radio allows people to grow in their faith, pray and learn more about what's happening in our Church. Help Iowa Catholic Radio by offering your support during this week's Care-A-Thon. You can help by calling 515-223-1150 or you can donate online at this link. Save to
