Pentecost Mass from the Cathedral

MAY 31, 2020:

NOTICE: Columbus Police have declared a state of emergency due to the protests and civil unrests downtown. Therefore, please not to come to St. Joseph Cathedral this weekend for Mass. We will be streaming the 10:30 Mass from our diocesan website (columbuscatholic.org) and broadcasting it live on St. Gabriel Radio (820 AM). May God bless you on this Feast of Pentecost and let us pray for peace and justice in our country.

Even though public worship of Masses will be opening in churches throughout the Diocese, St. Gabriel Radio and the Columbus Diocese will still offer live listening and video options. Please read below from Bishop Brennan’s May 13, 2020 letter about the dispensation to attend Sunday Mass through September 13, 2020.

“All Catholics in the Diocese of Columbus are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass at least through September 13, 2020. Please, if you have any concerns, do not come at this point. In fact, I encourage all to follow the public guidelines here in Ohio as much as possible. If you are in one or more of the “high risk” categories, it is still too early to come out. And, of course, if you are experiencing any signs of illness, you have a serious obligation to stay at home. Given that the obligation is dispensed, individuals who wish to participate at Mass and receive Holy Communion might consider coming at a less crowded time, perhaps during the week. The Cathedral will continue to broadcast Mass each day on St. Gabriel Radio and to stream via our diocesan YouTube channel as will many of our parishes.” – Read full letter here at ColumbusCatholic.org

Catholicism’s Most Popular Podcasts Now Coming to Catholic Radio


New partnership between Ascension and St. Gabriel Radio brings Father Mike Schmitz, Jeff Cavins, Dr. Edward Sri, and Father Josh Johnson to the airwaves of Columbus.


[West Chester, PA and Columbus, OH, May 18, 2020 – ] To evangelize effectively in a digital world, you need to be where people are—on their devices, in their cars, and in the social media sphere. Two acclaimed Catholic media entities have teamed up to make “great content and great delivery” a reality for Catholics living in the Columbus metro area.

Ascension (formerly known as Ascension Press) and St. Gabriel Radio today announced a new initiative to bring Ascension’s acclaimed podcasts such as The Father Mike Schmitz Catholic Podcast and The Jeff Cavins Show to a radio audience for the first time.


“Often in the Catholic world, organizations work in individual silos in their mission of evangelization,” explains Matthew Pinto, Ascension’s founder and president. “This partnership with St. Gabriel’s is part of a coordinated effort to share the beauty of the gospel with the Catholic community across all forms of media. We believe the ultimate beneficiaries of this collaboration will be Catholics throughout the Columbus region, who will experience rich new content previously only available in podcast form.”


According to Nielsen, radio continues to be “America’s top-reach medium,” with 92% of adults over 18 tuning in each week. This new partnership between Ascension and St. Gabriel Radio will make the faith-strengthening messages crafted by Ascension’s top evangelists available to a much wider audience in the Columbus metro area.


While podcasts have been steadily growing in popularity, Americans are still nearly three times more likely to listen to the radio as compared to podcasts overall, and twelve times more likely to listen to the radio than to play a podcast while driving. St. Gabriel Radio has slotted “Ascension Presents” programming for the popular 4:00–6:00 PM (Eastern) evening commute. The two-hour programming kicks off today, and will be available daily, Monday through Friday. The lineup will consist of content from Ascension presenters Father Mike Schmitz, Jeff Cavins, Dr. Edward Sri, and Father Josh Johnson.


“St. Gabriel Radio, like Ascension, seeks to keep things fresh,” comments Bill Messerly, executive director of St. Gabriel Radio, an independent affiliate radio station in the international EWTN Radio Network. “With the advent of podcasts, we have been seeking to see how we could bring this great content to our Catholic radio listeners. What better way to do this than to collaborate with the leader in faithful Catholic podcasts—Ascension.” 


Ascension’s family of podcasts enjoy large followings and top rankings in Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The Father Mike Schmitz Catholic Podcast is the #1 ranking Catholic podcast in both Apple Podcasts and Spotify, and Ascension produces 6 of the top 30 Catholic podcasts on the Apple Podcasts platform. Collectively, the shows selected for the St. Gabriel collaboration have been downloaded nearly 19 million times by listeners from more than 180 countries. This new venture will take the best in Catholic audio content and pair it with the unparalleled audience reach of radio.


“Although radio is often overlooked as a means to evangelize, Catholic radio is very effective. Over the last decade [my team] has heard hundreds of first-hand conversion stories that resulted from listening to Catholic radio,” attests Messerly. “We have been seeking new content that has a proven track record of long-lasting conversion. Ascension’s podcasts deliver on this. They not only have some of the best Catholic teachers in the world, but they have speakers who are genuine disciples of Jesus Christ. We are proud to partner with Ascension.”

Act of Spiritual Communion Prayer:

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
