The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe airs a weekly radio program entitled: “Aposotlado de Guadalupe” (The Apostolate of Guadalupe) which is hosted by the Very Rev. Esequiel Sanchez, Rev. Giovanny Navaro and Mr. Ignacio Perez, our engineer.
Radio Maria was born as a parish radio in 1983 in the diocese of Milan, Italy. Radio Maria’s mission was to keep parishioners informed, and to benefit them through prayer and through the broadcasts of daily Mass and the Rosary. Today, thanks to this successful start, Radio Maria has become a tool of the New Evangelization, serving the Church of the Third Millennium. It calls for conversion through its radio programming by offering prayer, catechesis, and programs on human development.
“The mission of Radio Maria is based on faith in Divine Providence and, except for a small number of salaried employees, depends on volunteer workers to further its mission. Radio Maria firmly believes in the principle of operating without advertising sponsorship, and strives to be good stewards of all contributions from its listeners. It wisely selects new technologies allowing it to stream over the internet, over smart phones, and other devices. Radio Maria also developed a special app to allow listeners to bring the radio to them everywhere, all over the world! With our Blessed Mother’s special love for her children, Radio Maria can reach them anywhere!” (https://radiomaria.us/about/)
