The show is every day from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and it replays each evening from 9:00-10:00 p.m. I’ll be on the show (barring a funeral, in which case another priest takes my place) on September 7th, October 5th, November 21st, December 14th, and January 19th. Relevant Radio is at 93.9 FM or you can download their app. Please pray for the remarkable work being done by Relevant Radio!

The World Apostolate of Fatima’s Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace is underway and coming to our parish! The historic tour, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, will feature the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue, traveling worldwide for nearly 70 years. St. John the Baptist is hosting the tour on Sept. 21st-22nd from noon until noon. It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace. Please join us to hear the story of Fatima and venerate this beautiful statue that set out from Fatima in 1947 to bring the graces of Fatima to all who might not ever be able to make a pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. We bring the pilgrimage to you. Hundreds of favors and graces, including cures, and countless conversions are associated with the image. The presence of this special Statue (sculpted by Jose Thedim in 1947, based on Sr. Lucia’s description of her encounters with Our Lady) is a great gift to our community. Contact Caren Alsides at 715-897-1900 for more information. (www.fatimatourforpeace.com)
