Spring Pledge Drive – 2018


Holy Family Radio’s Spring Pledge Drive – May 16 – 18

Join in the fun, fundraising and be part of the excitement for Christ and His Church! Continuing on the format changes, we’ll be broadcasting Live from St. Philips Studio in Battle Creek – Wednesday only.  We’ll still broadcast from the Grand Rapids studio on Thursday and Friday. We’re working to be more accessible to parishes, ministries, and organizations in both dioceses and make it easier for everyone to participate in the fun. Tune in to hear your favorite guests and support your local Catholic radio station!!

Come Holy Spirit Prayer:

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
