Spring Pledge Drive – 2016


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 Holy Family Radio’s Spring Pledge Drive .  Tune in to hear your favorite priests, Bishops from both dioceses and other guests you know and love.

Sherry Brownrigg will be hosting the Spring Pledge drive along with our very own, Deacon Jim Thorndill.

One of the many things offered during this pledge drive is a Greek Dinner served by Holy Family Radio staff at home of Deacon Jim and Diane Thorndill.
