News & Updates



On August 25 we will celebrate the anniversary of that day in 2011 when we heard five special words for the very first time—“THIS IS HOLY FAMILY RADIO.” Tears of gratitude and joy flowed freely when these words were heard. A dream that began on May 25, 2001 finally became a reality. We had a Catholic radio station that would serve the people of the Diocese of Harrisburg.


Jesus told Peter, “Feed My Sheep” and it is the mission of Holy Family Radio to continue to follow the words of Jesus by bringing God’s Word to our listeners. At our weekend Masses we are inspired by the homilies of our hard working priests and our many programs offer a continuation of that inspiration each day.


As our listeners know, Holy Family Radio is totally listener supported and we are grateful for the financial support of everyone who keeps us on the air. We appreciate all donations, no matter how small, and monthly donations are especially helpful.


When you financially support Holy Family Radio, you know how your donation is being used when you turn on the dial and hear the programs. Your financial support has another benefit. A Rosary is offered each day for all of our supporters. You can’t beat that! You hear what your support does and Mary hears our prayers for you.


As we celebrate another anniversary, we pray that you will continue to support the station and that Holy Family Radio will celebrate many more anniversaries in the years to come.


May the Holy Family always walk with you and grant you many blessings.

Spiritual Advisor's Corner

This time of year, I could eat watermelon, every day. I love it so much. But aside from its sweetness, it also has a ton of water. Apparently, for every cup of fruit, it yields a half-cup of water. It's almost half water! It needs to soak in everything around it in order to produce its sweetness and color. It gets its color, flavor and name from the water that falls around it.


We are like watermelon, and all things that come from the earth. We soak in whatever is in the ground around us. That can be our culture, it can be our family, and it can certainly be our faith. We soak in whatever is in our environment. And we have control over that. Sometimes at night, I'll watch a show on TV that, while it's not evil, it does not really lift me up. If I wake up the next day and I am sad or angry for no reason, I believe I am that way because the last thing that I soaked in was not good.


However, we have the great gift of our faith, which not only is a supplement, but alsoTHE key nutrient. If we take in Our Lord through the Sacraments and feed ourselves in prayer and in good relationships, seeking to avoid sin (and going to Confession when we fail to do so), we will soak everything we need to live a contented and joyful life here on earth and eternal life in Heaven. God bless you and enjoy the summer - and the watermelon!
