Help Us Find A New Transmitter Site!

The present transmitter site we operate from is temporary because the land the tower sat on, was previously sold for other development more than two years ago. Holy Family Radio requires at least eight (8) acres of flat land, possibly wet/marshy, with easy access to electric and telephone lines. A new site could increase our current coverage area by up to 30%! We would prefer to lease property. Is there a land owner out there who would like to support our Catholic mission and gift us a lease? Do you know of some land or someone who owns land? The property must be no more than five straight line miles West, or North West of Mechanicsburg or up a two miles due East or South of Mechanicsburg. Please go to the Technical page on this website for more information. If you can help, please call 717-525-8110.

Our Mission

"Is it possible that our enemies must be so active as to have the upper hand, while we remain passive, limiting ourselves to some prayer? Do we not perhaps have more powerful arms, the protection of heaven and of the Immaculate Virgin... the conqueror and destroyer of heresies who will never yield to the enemy who raises his head." - St. Maximillian Kolbe

Embracing the call of Vatican II for lay evangelization through the power of the media, we at Holy Family Radio, Inc., intend to utilize radio broadcasts to provide, through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Truth of the Holy Catholic Church for the nourishment of our Catholic Family and to share our Faith with others.

Holy Family Radio, Inc., is an apostolate of lay Catholics in communion with the Holy Father and the Magisterium, and place ourselves in the hands of the Holy Family; Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Through the inspiration of Saint Maximilian Kolbe and all the saints and martyrs, we will use our gifts and talents to actively work through these radio broadcasts to make known the Good News of Jesus Christ, for the honor and glory of God and the salvation of souls.

"...but the Word of God remains forever." 1 Peter 1:25
