Catch Up Wednesday of the Radiothon

September 8, 2010

From Dave Palmer with GRN:

We wish a very Happy Birthday to our Blessed Mother Mary today!

Thanks to the 127 of you who called in yesterday during the first day of our Fall Radiothon to help support Catholic Radio in North Texas.  The donations yesterday totaled $44,279. While this sounds like a big number, we were $10,000 off our totals from the first day of the Spring Radiothon. Calls yesterday were off by about 50 compared to the first day of the Spring Radiothon.

All this means that we have some catching up to do today for the second day of the Radiothon.  We’re hoping to have a better day today so that we can make up some of the lost ground from yesterday.

If you have not already done so, please call 800-476-3311 today to make as big a donation as possible to help keep the Voice of Truth on the air across North Texas.

And finally and most importantly, please pray for us today. Ask Our Lady on her birthday to interceded for us and inspire many to call in to support the Radiothon.

We are very grateful for your support.  KATH 910 AM is totally listener-supported and can only remain on the air with the support of our listeners.

God bless you and your family,

Major Blessings for the Diocese of Dallas in New Auxiliary Bishops

April 20, 2010

aux_bishopsOn April 27, 2010 Father J. Douglas Deshotel, 58, and Msgr. Mark J. Seitz, 56, will officially assume their roles as auxiliary bishops of the Diocese of Dallas. Having each served in the diocese for over 30 years, both men possess a genuine understanding of the needs of the community and are eager to assist Bishop Farrell in guiding the more than one million Catholics across the diocese.

The ordinations, set to take place at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas, will mark the first time an auxiliary bishop has served in the Diocese of Dallas since 1969. This recent decision by Pope Benedict XVI to appoint two auxiliary bishops to the diocese is a sign of the continued growth of the Catholic community throughout the Dallas area.

“The mission of the diocesan bishop is to insure the proclamation of the Good News of the Gospel, be the Good Shepherd of the people under his care, and build up the community through the celebration of the sacraments of our faith,” said Bishop-elect Deshotel, current vicar general of the Diocese of Dallas. “In a large and diverse diocese like Dallas, I hope to help Bishop Farrell in fulfilling this mission.”

The boom in the Catholic population within the Diocese of Dallas over the past decade has presented a challenge for the clergy in meeting all the needs of the people.

“My hope is that going from one bishop to three will make it possible for people to have a greater sense of the Church’s closeness to them,” said Bishop-elect Seitz, current pastor of St. Rita’s parish in Dallas. “A ministry of presence will be one of the most important, and I hope helpful, changes that people will note.”

Both priests will lean upon the examples of the saints and role models to aid in the shaping of their new ministries.

Bishop-elect Seitz holds a special devotion to his patron, St. Mark, and will use the winged lion – the symbol of St. Mark – on his coat of arms. “[St. Mark’s] boldness in recording and proclaiming the Gospel has always been important to me,” he said. “I also love the fact that he was a living link between St. Peter and St. Paul, both of whom he assisted.”

Bishop-elect Deshotel has held his childhood parish priest, Father Jules C. Speyer, as a model throughout his lifetime of ministry. “He was a part of every family – joined in their happy celebrations, comforted them in their difficulties and walked through their lives at all the key moments from birth to death,” he said. “His kindness and gentleness truly gave me a picture of Christ the Good Shepherd.”

In a statement to the press, Bishop Farrell said that both auxiliary bishops will be a “tremendous help…and a continued blessing to the people of the diocese.”

Guadalupe Radio Network KATH 2010 Spring ‘Celebrate the Year of Priests’ Radiothon Update

March 23, 2010

From Dave Palmer, General Manager, KATH 910 AM

Today is the day! The Spring Radiothon for KATH begins today from 8am-7pm on 910 AM. Now more than ever it’s important to have the voice of Truth, the voice of our beloved Catholic faith on the radio here in North Texas. The theme of the radiothon is ‘Celebrating the Year for Priests’ as we give thanks to the men who bring us Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and the other Sacraments.

Please help us make this first day of the Radiothon a big success to ensure that Catholic radio remains on Catholic Radio in North Texas. We ask that you remember to do the following today:

1. Please pray for the Radiothon. If possible, offer up the success of the Radiothon at Mass or visit our Lord in adoration, say a rosary, the Divine Mercy, etc. This will help immensely.
2. Please call 800-476-3311 to make your pledge of support today between 8am-7pm.
3. Please call or email your friends and family to ask them to make their pledge today as well. You can simply forward this email and let them know that you are planning to make a pledge today as well.

The first day of the Radiothon sets the tone for the whole Radiothon so let’s be sure to get started today with a bang!

Thanks so much and may God bless you this day! We really appreciate your support of Catholic Radio on the Guadalupe Radio Network.

Support Catholic Radio Beginning Today

March 3, 2009

North Texas (MetroCatholic) - The Radiothon at Guadalupe Radio Network begins today.  Here’s the latest from Dave Palmer:


‘and the truth is passed on by the small, fervent band of the few. Not by the many but by the dauntless, resolute, dedicated few.’

The quote above by the late John Henry Cardinal Newman I believe best explains the value of Catholic Radio. If Catholic Radio doesn’t pass on the Truth of the Catholic faith, then who on the radio will?
Tuesday morning, March 2nd at 8am we will begin a four day Radiothon on KATH 910 AM with the theme of ‘Light of the World.’  If you agree that having the voice of Catholicism on  the radio in North Texas is important during these difficult times, I humbly ask you to do two things on Tuesday.
1. Please call the Radiothon at 1-800-476-3311 between 8am-7pm to make your own donation. A sacrificial donation of any size is very important and we really appreciate it.
2. Please forward this (information) to everyone on your email list asking them to make a pledge today to keep Catholic Radio on the air in North Texas.
3. And finally, and most importantly, please pray for the the success of the Radiothon and pray that we will always be faithful to our mission of leading others to Christ through His Church. 
We really appreciate your prayerful and financial support of Catholic Radio. 

May God bless you and your family today,
