Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our mission is aligned with Pope St. John Paul II's New Evangelization. Many Catholics who have received the sacrament have been poorly evangelized. Of those some have fallen away from their faith. Many of other denominations or no denomination have questions about the Catholic Church. Radio program need to answer those questions and provide authentic Catholic teaching.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The mission of The Sword of St. George, Inc. is to help draw people to Jesus Christ and His One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church by way of broadcasting radio programming which instructs listeners in the Faith, that they may know the Faith, so as to live it and witness to others, and, through devotions that call the listener into conversation with God.

One goal is to broadcast top quality Catholic programs.
The next, is to have 10% of Catholic households in our area listening to Catholic radio at some time through the week.

We will continue to broadcast EWTN's programs.

We will continue producing morning and evening prayer and praise programs.

We have produced spots to teach on Natural Law.

We have begun making presentations at the parishes in our local area to promote the station. We will continue these presentations through 2019 and 2020. We will also take advantage of opportunities to have information tables at conferences and parish fundraisers.

Our internet stream is registered with Reciva and TuneIn. These are two major services that provide content to internet radios. We have been promoting internet radios as one means to listen to our programming in addition to over the air, on our own webplayer and apps for smart devices. Our stream is registered on more than 10 platforms, including Amazon Echo and Google Home.

We have all of the transmission and production equipment in place to meet our needs. In 2016 we procured the ability to make live remote broadcasts.

We have a 30 year radio veteran as our programming director. We've two other veteran broadcasters helping with production.

We are currently broadcasting over the air, live streaming from our website, and streaming to smart devices via our Apps for iOS and Android devices.

We are streaming to internet radios, via Reciva and TuneIn.

We got on the air July, 2015 and on the internet.

We have been producing Morning Prayer and Praise and The Family Rosary for Peace/Evening Prayer. We've completed production of the first installment of spots on Natural Law.



We've recently received permission to promote our station in the Manhattan Area from Bishop Vincke. We will hope the parish priests will also be supportive as we ask for permission to make parish presentations at their Masses.
