Our Bishop, Robert J. Brennan, has called for a special day of prayer and penance for the sick and those who care for them on Friday, March 27, 2020.

In support of his call, St. Gabriel Radio will have at the top of each hour a local priest for 10-15 minutes of prayer and encouragement.  We will do this from 8AM-5PM and rejoin our regularly scheduled programming during these hours.

We hope you will join us this Friday – listening and praying with your community!

Pope Francis has also called us to join with the world in prayer through the extraordinary blessing “urbi et orbi”. Pope Francis will preside outside of St. Peter’s Basilica with the square empty as everyone is invited to participate spiritually. The blessing will occure at 1 p.m. ET on Friday. Read more about that here and watch this short video about the blessing from the U.S Conference for Catholic Bishops.

St. Gabriel Radio will carry EWTN’s broadcast of Pope Francis’ blessing Friday, March 27 at 1PM and 8PM.
