Listener Supported Ave Maria Radio Will be Joining the Streaming Faith Initiative to Provide Free Religious Audio Programming to Inmates in the BOP
Liberty Quest is announcing the second Catholic group to support the Streaming Faith Initiative by making it audio programming available for prisoners. Ave Maria Radio extends its colorful mission to be a dynamic Catholic apostolate committed to spreading the Gospel through various media outlets.
Twenty five years ago, Domino’s Pizza founder and former owner of the Detroit Tigers, Tom Monaghan established Legatus, an apostolate to encourage Catholic business leaders to apply their faith in all their business dealings and to apply their business skills to the missionary mandate of the Church. Tom wanted to model what a “Legate” was supposed to be. He had five areas of priority. One required that he use his talent and resources to extend the work of the Church in media. Ave Maria Radio was the beneficiary of Tom’s faithfulness as a Legate.
Ave Maria Radio is a listener supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that employs broadcast radio, mobile technology, the internet and social media to offer news, analysis, teaching, devotions and music to demonstrate the Good News that Jesus is Lord over all areas of life. We show that the teaching of Christ, through His Church, offers a rational view of the world, a deep sense of spirituality, a firm family life, enhanced human relationships, and the creation of a culture of life and love.
Catholic Radio can be heard on over 220 terrestrial stations throughout the United States. It’s even more impressive because of the Catholic presence on satellite radio, internet streaming audio, and over smart phones and other devices that now have special apps to allow listening to Catholic radio all over the world.
Liberty Quest Executive Director PJ McMann said, “This is such an exciting time for us. To garner support from such a large organization like Ave Maria Radio really moves the Initiative forward. We want to encourage participation from Christian associations from all walks of life. The words of Christ can be beneficial and soothing whether they are spoken in English or Spanish, or whether they come from a Catholic or Protestant. You cannot change what He has said. You can only listen, receive and be one with Him. And then pass the good news along.”
Michael P. Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Ave Maria Radio commented, “The Streaming Faith Initiative is very consistent with our core mission: to use current and mass media technology to effectively spread the word of God. We are pleased to have the opportunity to extend the reach of God’s message, especially to a group that is in so desperate a need to hear it. It’s a great thing.”
