Listener-Supported Catholic Radio

News & Updates

Holy Family Radio is back on the air thanks to many prayers and hard work of our volunteers Joe Murphy, John Russo and Gary Gruver. Thanks for your patience.

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Middletown is presenting a live nativity on the parish grounds on Friday, December 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the church parking lot, which will be transformed into Bethlehem, the place of Jesus’s birth.


Guests will be guided by the three Wise Men as they visit the Bethlehem innkeeper, shepherds, live animals, and the Holy Family – Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus.


While waiting, guests will be entertained with Christmas music performed by the band Forgiven, enter a Scripture Walk, and receive a free chance to win a set of five stuffed nativity animals.


Families are welcome, and the Children’s Nook will keep little ones busy coloring The Little Star story. Children may also pet the live animals, which include bunnies, sheep, goats, a donkey, and a llama.


After visiting the manger, guests are invited to stop by the fire pit for a complimentary s’more (while supplies last), pet the live animals, visit the Bethlehem tents, and purchase a star-shaped soft pretzel or hot chocolate (also while supplies last).


Guests are also invited to visit the church and share prayer requests, which can be hung on the tree or placed in the prayer request box. Seven Sorrows parishioners will pray for attendees and their requests throughout the days leading to Christmas.


Parking is free and available in the school lots. Overflow parking is available at GIANT and along side streets. All visitors must go through the school’s Door #4 to enter the queue. The live nativity is located on the campus of Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish at 360 E. Water Street, Middletown, PA 17057.

Update from Maria Gallagher,

PA Pro-Life Federation

Thousands of pregnant women throughout Pennsylvania could lose the vital services they need, if Governor Josh Shapiro goes ahead with his plan to rescind the contract of Real Alternatives. Real Alternatives runs Pennsylvania’s award-winning Pregnancy and Parenting Support Services program. The program funds pregnancy resource centers, maternity homes, and adoption agencies across the Commonwealth. Nearly 350,000 women have been served by the program, which has become a model for the rest of the nation.


Action Item: Please contact your state Representative and state Senator and let them know that you stand with pregnant women and want Real Alternatives’ contract renewed.  Thank you for making these critical calls and sending these important emails!  Use the link below.
