Knights of Columbus in the Diocese of Amarillo are sponsoring a fundraiser for Catholic Radio, with the opportunity to win one of four prize packages to be given away in June.
“The fundraiser will support the needs and programs of Catholic Radio of the High Plains Radio Ministries,” said Dale Artho of St. Valentine Catholic Radio.
Catholic Radio of the Texas High Plains Radio Ministries is an outreach of St. Valentine Catholic Radio, Holy Family Church in Nazareth and St. John Nepomucene Church in Hart to build, maintain and promote the Catholic Faith through the medium of radio.
“Our goal is to generate funds to build two new Low Power FM (LPFM) radio stations and to reduce the upgrade debt for St. Valentine Catholic Radio,” added Artho. “The purpose of the LPFM’s is to provide EWTN Catholic radio coverage in English to listeners in the Nazareth area and in Spanish to listeners in the Hart area.”
A ticket for the fundraiser can be purchased with a $25 donation or five tickets can be obtained for a $100 donation from any Knights of Columbus member in the Diocese of Amarillo.
