Did you hear the news about Christendom College's new radio
station? Since Nov. 30, the station, WDXM 90.3 FM, has been
broadcasting a nonstop stream of Catholic programming from
EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network.
Last Friday, I watched Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde visit
Christendom, celebrate Mass and

During his homily, Bishop Loverde spoke about the important

and non-Catholics in and around the Front Royal area. Thanks
to the addition of a second radio tower in three months,

Northern Shenandoah Valley, making it the first Catholic
radio station to broadcast from Virginia. This is truly a

Satellite radio listeners have multiple options to hear
Catholic programming on both The Catholic
Channel (Channel 129 on Sirius XM) and EWTN Global Catholic Radio
And last but not least, Catholic podcasts are widely
available for Metro commuters, iPod addicts and others
without regular radio access. Popular shows include Catholic Answers
Stuff You Should Know and the SaintCast. All episodes can be
downloaded for free to mobile devices at itunes.com.
