Spirit Catholic Radio is happy to announce that as of Dec. 1, Chadron's 89.3-FM is the newest signal in the radio network.
Chadron is located in the Grand Island Diocese in northwestern Nebraska.
In honor of the launch, several local guests were on the air yesterday to welcome Chadron to the network including Bishop William J. Dendinger of the Diocese of Grand Island, Fr. Timothy Stoner of St. Patrick's Catholic Parish in Chadron and Colby Thomazin of Chadron State College's Newman Center.
“Spirit Catholic Radio is a blessing for the state of Nebraska,” said Bishop William J. Dendinger of the Diocese of Grand Island. “It allows believers and non-believers to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. I encourage those within the diocese to tune-in and invite their family and friends to do the same.”
Executive Director of Spirit Catholic Radio Jim Carroll recently shared the following message with listeners in Chadron:
"I am delighted to welcome the community of Chadron to the family of Spirit Catholic Radio listeners across the state of Nebraska. Beginning Dec. 1, you can hear Spirit Catholic Radio on 89.3-FM. With the addition of Spirit 89.3-FM Chadron, the Spirit Catholic Radio Network now has five stations that cover 76 percent of the population of the state and the three Nebraska Catholic dioceses and reaches into Iowa, South Dakota, Kansas and Missouri. Spirit Catholic Radio is a non-profit radio apostolate. Our mission is simply to transmit the Good News of Jesus Christ over the radio airwaves. It is our hope that through the family-friendly programming we provide, we’ll help our listeners to develop closer, more meaningful relationships with Christ, learn more about their faith and feel inspired. We carry a variety of programs with nearly 30 hours a week of locally-produced programs in Nebraska, as well as from over 30 sources throughout the country including EWTN, Ave Maria and other networks. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy what you hear on Spirit 89.3-FM. On behalf of the entire team at Spirit Catholic Radio and our four additional stations—welcome to the family Chadron!"
The entire team at Spirit Catholic Radio wishes to extend a warm welcome to our newest listeners in Chadron and we look forward to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with you through the radio airwaves each day.
