Conversation With Glen Lewerenz

Every day, Glen hosts Conversation With Glen Lewerenz, a local program with regional and local people of interest to our Catholic listenership.

Glen has on local priests and ordained people, along with lay people working in ministerial roles.

For instance, earlier this month Glen featured Father Scott Pogatchnik, the pastor of the Cathedral of St. Mary in St. Cloud. Father Scott spoke with Glen about the Christmas season, about growing as we move into the new year and gaining insight and wisdom around ourselves and our place in the world.

As well, he spoke with Brian Gibson, Executive Director of Pro-Life Action Ministries which works to save babies from abortion across the nation for the past 35 years. Brian spoke with Glen about the work they’ve done in 2016, babies saved, and the results of their “40 Days For Life” efforts.

Why Advertise On Catholic News Radio?

As an owner or advertising manager, you want to advertise wisely. While radio advertising has been looked on as a poor option,  on Catholic news radio stations are an entirely different story!

Advertisers find Catholic news radio stations a great investment, because while the listener base may be smaller than average, they are fiercely invested and protective of their Catholic news radio stations, like K-YES 1180 AM.

Why Advertise On Catholic News Radio

Upbeat Listeners Are Upbeat Customers

When you listen to K-YES in particular, you will often hear Relevant Radio. This is programming from Green Bay, WI, which really resonates with the way our listeners live their lives and the way we live ours.

People of all ages and situations in life find encouragement through our message of hope, and carry that hope out through the community and into every business they visit. Wouldn’t you prefer to deal with upbeat customers who are always ready with a smile and a kind word? Don’t you think others, possibly other customers, would be drawn to a business which attracts these kinds of people?


It’s Easy To Build Credibility And Trust

The biggest challenge for any business is building credibility and trust. Often, businesses attempt to do so by associating themselves with another brand. What better brand to associate with than one with fiercely loyal, upbeat listeners?


Listener Base Is Small But Loyal

Many Catholic news radio listeners prefer to purchase from businesses advertising on Catholic news radio stations.

Because Catholic news radio stations are generally non-profits, listeners know that the companies who advertise with us are supporting their station. That’s why we call our advertisers “business supporters.”

Listeners are also supporters themselves, continually sending in their own donations to support the station. They are heavily invested in the continuing strength of their Catholic news radio stations, so when they hear your advertisement on their station, you become “part of the family.”

Advertising with Catholic news radio stations is a great opportunity for your business, so we hope you will contact us today and give it a try!

What Is Marriage: 4 Ways To Honor This Sacrament

“Let marriage be held in honor among all.” Hebrews 13:4

“What is marriage?” is a questions many people don’t take the time to ask themselves or their partner. It seems so simple a child could define it. But marriage is a deep sacrament, given to us by God.

It is so important, Christ honored it by performing his first miracle at a wedding, turning water into wine.

Honoring Marriage Day is on May 7, 2016, and a special mass will be held at 1 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral honoring couples celebrating their fifth, 25th, 40th, 50th, 60th and beyond anniversaries. A cake and punch reception will follow in the lower level of the Cathedral.

In recognition of Honoring Marriage Day and this important question of “what is marriage?”, let’s go over four ways to honor and support this sacrament.

1. Pray For It

Praying is important throughout your life, but people often don’t think about praying for their current or soon-to-be spouse. Some may consider praying and asking God for a spouse, but truly you should be praying for your spouse to be holy and loving when you are finally brought together.

Praying for this sacrament in general, that it be honored by all in the way God intended, is also important.

2. Wait For It

Waiting for marriage implies two separate concepts: waiting before engaging in sexual intimacy, and waiting for the right time to marry without delaying beyond the time God intends. God forbids sexual intimacy before marriage. We are not permitted to engage in any sexual contact before saying our vows, and in this way we keep our sexual lives pure, honoring this special relationship by procreating within it’s bounds.

Marrying before you are ready, or delaying marrying your partner frivolously also dishonors this sacrament. One must be mature enough to make the choice to marry while also following local laws. You must also not delay married life, choosing to either live together outside of the sacrament’s bounds or delaying when you are already ready.

3. Center It On Christ

Family life is centered on marriage, and marriage is centered on Christ. Both your wedding and married life should be thought of in context of their relationship to Christ, and you should always reevaluate whether what you are doing is right and correct.

Weddings which have virtually no reference to God, Christ, the Holy Spirit or the Gospel are not very Christ centered. The same can be said for marriages which do not emphasize God-given children (either natural or adopted), regular prayer, and balance between family and work.

4. Defend And Promote It

Defend this sacrament against those who attempt to re-define it, as well as those who demean it. It is a union between God, woman and man, to care for children and raise them in Christ’s love.

Promote it to others by your strong example: attend church and community functions as a family; pray for each other, your family and community; care for your neighbors and friends as you would Christ, no matter their religion, views or lifestyle; and when someone is considering marriage, ask them to really consider “what is marriage?” and how they can best honor it.
