Our Holy Father and all of the Bishops have called each of us to evangelize and share our faith with those around us. This is what we do at Holy Family Radio.

Holy Family Radio is a non-profit organization that depends totally on donations from our listeners, businesses, and professionals. Everyone can actively participate in our efforts to bring God’s Word to the people by financially supporting the work that we do. We have become friends to many elderly people who are alone and depend on the station for companionship; we have become the peace for prisoners who are serving life sentences and find comfort and salvation in our programs; we have become the hope for the many who have lost their faith by inviting them to come “Home” and return to the Catholic Church.

We ask you to be part of our Share-A-Thon, sharing in the mission of Holy Family Radio… “Nourishing our Catholic Family…Sharing our Faith with Others.” Prayerful thanks to all who have already assisted us and have become an irreplaceable part of our family… thank you and God bless you! We ask everyone to please pray about sharing your financial blessings so that you can unite with us in evangelizing over the airwaves of south-central Pennsylvania.

God bless each of you for supporting the mission of Holy Family Radio.

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
