Helping out Catholic radio...

Sr. Grace Marie and Sr. Mary Peter, two of our Poor Clare nuns, went with me today to take part in the "radiothon" fundraising for our local Catholic radio station.

Our goal was to raise $4,500 in an hour. When we completed that task in about half that time, the folks at the station doubled our goal, so we raised another $4,500 - and not only that, we went on and took in another $2,000+, all within our allotted hour!

I'm grateful to the faithful donors who enabled us to break all the records so far during this radiothon, including the record for the most calls during an hour, and the most money raised within an hour.

It was great fun, and it's for a great cause. Guadalupe Radio 89.7 FM is an important apostolate here in South Texas. I'm glad we were able to help keep it on the air.
