Real Presence Radio Network News

This is a great tool for evangelization in a very, very practical way. We’re taking the message of Jesus--the stories of Jesus--and we’re simply putting them out there so that people can hear them."
Fr. Michel Mulloy - Diocese of Rapid City

Join hosts Brad Gray and Jeanine Bitzan for the following:
Johnnette Williams, 9:00-9:20 a.m. CT
Finding joy after losing a spouse seems like a pretty difficult task, doesn’t it? One person who knows this well is Johnnette Williams, host of EWTN’s Women of Grace. She’ll share her story of loss and how she came to trust even more in God’s plan for her life, a plan that brought something she didn’t see coming.
Straight Talk with Fr. Scott Karnik, 9:30-10:00
Fr. Kregg Hochhalter & Jake Daniel, 10:00-10:20
Pack your bags, because we’re heading to Bible Boot Camp! The Know Your Faith Competition is back, and a team from Trinity High School in Dickinson will be marching into Shanley High School in Fargo, hoping to walk away with the trophy. Fr. Kregg Hochhalter and Jake Daniel from Trinity will be with us to talk about their excitement for this year’s competition.

Fr. John Paul Trask & Jens Christensen, 10:30-10:40
What happens when you get the priests of the Diocese of Rapid City and students from St. Thomas More Catholic High School in the same place at the same time? A basketball game you don’t want to miss! Fr. John Paul Trask and student Jens Christensen will give us an inside look at this year’s Men in Black game and talk about which team will be walking out the gym doors with the victory.
Nora Boesem & Jim Kinyon, 10:40-11:00
It seems like common sense that a mother would not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, right? Sadly, this isn’t always the case, and babies in the womb suffer irreversible physical and mental damage because of it. Nora Boesem and Jim Kinyon of Catholic Social Services in Rapid City will tell us more about the effects of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and share how they are trying to help those who are giving care to a child with it.

Thomas Eskro, 10:45-11:00

James Cheney will join us to provide an update and share how you can be involved in this faith-saving mission!
Dr. David Anders, 10:45-11:00
We have the fullness of the faith as Catholics, but are we missing something? Are there things we can learn from other denominations that can help us live out our faith in a better way? That’s the question we’ll pose to Dr. David Anders, host of EWTN’s Called to Communion.
