Fall Pledge Drive – 2013

Thank you to Holy Family Radio’s Community of Listeners!

Your support of Holy Family Radio’s Fall Pledge Drive — as well as the efforts of 2 Bishops, 18 Priests, 7 Deacons, 2 Sisters, 75 additional guests, 20 students leading prayers, 100+ Prayer Warriors,  and  100+ volunteers — helped us raise over $155,000 for our two listener supported Catholic Radio stations!  Your generous support allows us to continue the mission of evangelization – building faith and sharing Christ in the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo Dioceses.

Join in the fun, fundraising and be part of the excitement for Christ and His Church!  Many local vibrant parishes, ministries and organizations will be highlighted during the 3 days and 33 hours of Holy Family Radio’s Spring Pledge Drive including:  Bishop David Walkowiak (Diocese of Grand Rapids) and Bishop Emeritus James Murray (Diocese of Kalamazoo).  Tune in to hear your favorite priest and other guests you know and love.

The theme for the Fall – 2013 pledge drive is “Everything is Yours” based on 1 Chronicles 29:11, “For everything in heaven and earth is yours. You are exalted as head over all.”  Jerry Usher, host of Vocation Boom Radio, and Wendy Templeton will be hosting the pledge drive this year.
