Relevant Radio Launches Live, Interactive Family Rosary Program

GREEN BAY, Wisc. (CNS) – A new live interactive program debuted Jan. 15 on Relevant Radio aimed at bringing together people across the U.S. to pray the rosary at the same time.

Believed to be the first program of its kind, Relevant Radio’s “Family Rosary Across America” will originate in the area of Los Angeles, Calif., with the rosary led by Father Dave Heney, pastor of St. Bruno Catholic Church in Whittier, Calif. The program will air Monday through Friday at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).

An announcement from the Green Bay-based Relevant Radio said listeners will be able to call in or email their prayer intentions each day to be prayed for during the broadcast. Listeners can call 1-888-914-9149 or send an email to

“Imagine your joy as you hear people praying for your intentions, and your joy knowing that your prayers are helping others in our family of faith who are in need,” Father Heney said in a statement.

“Imagine people all across America joining their voices together in the rosary at the same time.”

“Join your voice with them in this live rosary broadcast,” urged the priest, who is the founder of “The University Series,” a large multi-parish adult education program. He also is the host of the Come, Pray the Rosary website:

“To our knowledge, this has never happened before, and we are full of hope that this pious devotion will bring many graces to our families, listeners, church and country,” said Father Francis Hoffman, Relevant Radio’s executive director.

“The rosary is a most powerful prayer, recommended by the Blessed Mother, saints, popes and ordinary folks who have experienced the mercy of God through the intercession of Our Lady,” said the priest, best known as “Father Rocky.”

“Relevant Radio is truly thrilled that we can now bring the entire country together on a daily basis to pray the rosary as a family,” he added.
