Are You Listening?

Maybe you heard? The 2018
Spring Radiothon for Oklahoma
Catholic Broadcasting raised
more than $89,000! This was
due in large part to a gracious
EWTN donor who extended a
$20,000 challenge match.

Oklahoma parishes also issued
challenge matches as did
several parishioners donating
and challenging in the names of
their parishes from Saint John
the Baptist, Edmond; Christ the
King, Oklahoma City; Corpus
Christi, Oklahoma City; Saint
Robert Bellarmine, Jones; and
Blessed Sacrament, Lawton.
Individual donors and business
sponsors also supported the
radiothon.

Our priests, led by Archbishop
Coakley, demonstrated God’s
faithfulness by always including
Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting
as a priority. Father
Brashears witnessed to listeners
the impact that Catholic radio
made on his life, beginning
when he was a student. Father
Danny Grover served as the
energy drink in our campaign.
He helped Jeff Finnell and Deacon
Larry Sousa with broadcast
duties and advocated tirelessly
for contributions.

One gift they all bestowed
on us was more valuable than
anything I have yet mentioned,
and that is their priestly blessing.
Our priests represent Jesus
Himself. I was struck by the
abundance the blessings yielded.

Phone volunteers Barb Smola
and Angie Sousa brought
delicious treats to sustain us
during the radiothon.
When I hear stories on Oklahoma
Catholic Radio of how
ordinary people like me respond
to God’s call in extraordinary
ways, in every imaginable circumstance,
I want what they
have with God. I want to share
in God’s glory as evidenced on
programs like “The Journey
Home” or “Make Straight the
Way.”
As we act as good stewards of
how God is blessing us, we are
imagining what is possible with
God.
