CATHOLIC INTERNET RADIO

 

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT, FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS, HGUH RADIO HAS NOW CHANGED ITS NAME TO HEAVEN'S ROAD fm CATHOLIC RADIO @ www.heavensroadfm.com

 

This new radio builds on the experience gained after founding the first UK Catholic internet radio and is largely run by the same trusty band of volunteers.  The Radio is always looking for enthusiastic people to help make programmes, techies to operate the Radio and administrators to hold it all together.  You can get further information at http://www.heavensroadfm.com/vols/.  They provide training and support so previous experience in radio is not necessary but some familarity with computers is helpful.

 

See http://www.heavensroadfm.com/ for details.

 

The Radio has operated on a shoe-string and has been supported by family and friends.  Any donation, however small, would be very much appreciated.  If you would like to help, please go to: http://www.heavensroadfm.com/donate/

 

All at Heavens Road thank you for your continued support and prayers.  God Bless you!

 

 

They are also making a series called 'Your Parish's Favourite Hymns'.  Each week they will play the hymns

of a selected parish and tell of the highlights about the parish.  If you would like your parish to be featured, please contact us on the above email for more information.

 

Heaven's Road Catholic Radio Broadcasts Live Mass

 

The Holy Father said "The internet offers immense possibilities .... this is something truly good - a gift from God".  They offer him their humble efforts to evangelise our faith.

 

Having made a good start since their launch last November their listener numbers are growing well and they have even attracted people from over 40 countries.  They are now offering three services online:

 

  • Broadcasting 24/7 with prayers, music and features - all original content designed to appeal to a Catholic Audience.
  • Listen-again podcasts - over 200 programmes available to listen to when it's convenient.
  • Live Masses - webcasts from over 15 churches with masses available each week - a wonderful resource for our housebound parishioners.

 

 

 

The radio broadcasts 24/7 a wide range of prayers, music, poems and features including:

 

  • Did you hear a calling?  People tell their own faith stories
  • Highlights of Catholic Charities
  • Music - showcasing Catholic talent from Gregorian Chart to Catholic Rap
  • Seventh Heaven their own take on Desert Island Discs
  • Poetry Corner
  • Island of Saints - an insight into English Saints
  • Lots of other exciting topics

 

The website also has 200+ programmes available as podcasts for you to listen to as well.  In the near future they hope to be able to provide live Masses.

 

 

They are continuing to look for:

 

  • Volunteers in Admin especially

     Programme librarian and scheduler

      Keeping Facebook and Twitter Accounts 

      Lively.

 

  • Editors to make broadcastable programmes from raw audio files.

     

  • Motivated potential Interviewers, DJs, producers, singers, musicians etc.

 

Training will be given so no experience is necessary however a good familiarity with computers would be an advantage.  Please note that much can be done over the internet so volunteers don't have to live near Guildford.

PRAY THE ROSARY ONLINE

There is a website called

http://www.comepraytherosary.org

which allows you to pray the rosary along with whoever is online at the time. You are told how many people you are praying with at any one time and there are visuals which you may choose in order to assist your prayer. Those of the Holy Land are particulary interesting.

 

EXCITING NEWS FROM BUCKFAST ABBEY!

 

We have been given the following information from Buckfast Abbey of a very exciting new development for Catholic Life and for the New Evangelisation.

 

The School of the Annunciation has now been launched with the support of ,and in collaboration with, the Abbot and Benedictine Community of Buckfast Abbey, Devon.  The school offers short summer schools and longer courses for adults in Catholic Theology, Philosophy for Faith, Catechisis and Art, Beauty and Theology.  They aim to have an increasingly international outreach by offering different courses, some of which involve short residential visits to this wonderful site, combined with a distance-learning methodology.

 

There is a variety of courses on offer already, with more exciting developments to come.

 

Why not join them for one of their short summer school courses, of a few days, at this beautiful and historic medieval location in Devon?
