Immaculate Heart Radio expands to Orange County

orange_county_pictureImmaculate Heart Radio now reaches another 6.8 million people, as today we increase the power of our San Diego station, KCEO 1000 AM. This signal expansion allows KCEO to stretch from southern Los Angeles county all the way to the Mexican border – covering nearly all of the Diocese of Orange.  With 1.3 million Catholics in the Diocese of Orange, we are excited to share the best Catholic programming with Catholic and non-Catholic alike.

“Radio is so accessible,” said Doug Sherman, president of Immaculate Heart Radio. “Just look at the freeways – so many people are tuned into the radio. So we try to give encouragement and solutions to everyday problems from a Catholic perspective.”

The Diocese of Orange will produce one hour of original programming each week, Orange County Catholic Radio, which will air Thursdays at 11 a.m. The program will be produced from the Christ Cathedral Campus in Garden Grove, CA. Most Rev. Kevin Vann, bishop of the Diocese of Orange recently said:

“In a lot of ways, Catholic radio has a long history of evangelizing. I used to listen to Catholic radio in Rome. Now to bring it to Orange County is a chance to pray and listen and inform people while they are in their cars. It is an opportunity to communicate with all types of people.”

Pro-Life Novena: 9 Days for Life

January 22nd marks the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States. Each year hundreds of thousands of people attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C., the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, and many other events around the country to testify to the beauty of life.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is organizing a novena (special prayers offers on nine consecutive days) to promote a culture of life in our country. The 9 Days for Life will take place from January 17th until January 25th, and is a great option if you can’t make it to a pro-life march!

There are several easy ways you can join in the novena:
