Faith & Sport: Our goal is to bring an everyday sports-talk show to Catholics and Catholic-radio listeners, but with character, morality, and ethics as a regular part of the conversation.

Some former guests include Frank Reich (Head coach – Indianapolis Colts), Joe Delamielleure (NFL Hall of Famer), Fr Chase Hilgenbrinck (former MLS player), Daniel “Rudy” Reuttiger (Movie “Rudy”), and many others.

Why our Faith is important in Sport: In 2004, Pope John Paul II instituted the Office of Church and Sport to fully recognize the significance of athletics in our culture. The pope intended that athletes, fans, parents, coaches, and sport administrators call upon their Catholic faith to guide actions and words in athletic competition.
