Founder Reflections

Praise be Jesus Christ!  Now and forever!

Each week seems to grow in the amount of infomation, education and inspiration we need to share with you as a CAROLINA CATHOLIC Community.That's a a good place to begin. 

I thoroughly enjoy listening and watching the encores of our many local programs. I learn so much more when repeated. Over the weekend during an encore of our Catholic Night Baseball Broadcast, Jason Murphy interviewed Msgr. Patrick Winslow. 

As the interview concluded, Msgr. Winslow said: “…we have a great Catholic family in western North Carolina and Carolina Catholic Radio is able to keep us all connected a little bit more."

That quote stopped me in my tracks.  Why?  Because since the Holy Spirit led me on this journey back at the 2015 Catholic Men's Conference, the mission and vision for this apostolate has been to bring half a million Catholics in western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina closer together.  By the Grace of God we are still here and so are you.  With your support we hope and pray to leave a gift for our children and grandchildren to keep them strong in their faith from their "domestic church" to the "public square".

Be not afraid.  This is a time for courage.  The winds are changing.  Together we can accomplish much for God's Greater Glory!  What role are you being called to play?

Yours in Christ,
