WMET Guadalupe Radio (1160 am; 103.1 fm ; grnonline.com; GRN app )
For a few years now, members have been helping GRN Guadalupe Radio in a variety of ways. Before the shutdown we were continuing to
develop ways to team up with the radio station. The radio station will be able to help us with some of our outreach in a variety of ways. In. addition, we are working on a few innovative ideas to help raise awareness of the Order of Malta in the area. We are developing a recurring feature on WMET featuring teachings on the beatitudes. Guadalupe Radio programming is excellent and provides much opportunity to deepen our knowledge of the faith and prepare ourselves to defend the faith when called to do so.
The Fishers of Men Gala is scheduled for some time each spring. For more information contact Mary Petrino Mary.Petrino@gmail.com
Please sign up to pray in solidarity with our members for our prayer intentions by sending a text with the words "prayer storm" to phone number 88202 from a cell phone or tablet. Thank you to all who have recently joined!! Contact Mary Petrino at firstname.lastname@example.org
