As Brother Knights, our position is to evangelize our faith, to promote our cause, and to educate each other about our beliefs. Great News! Catholic radio is coming to Los Angeles on November 17th. As State Deputy, I am asking you all to assist in the process of awareness. Please contact the below link and call for an awareness kit. Then promote the station as the kit instructions show. You will receive a Banner, posters, flyers and some bumper stickers. This station, KHJ 930 AM, will cover the entire southland region when it launches in mid-November. Attached is your invitation to attend the Launch Ceremony. His Excellency Archbishop Gomez, will do the ceremonial honors of switching on the station. We support our Bishops and Priests and we should assist him in his Catholic Evangelizing. The Station has approved the marketing of the Knights of Columbus also as an added bonus for our assistance. This is pure membership growth potential for all of us.
I urge you to participate and assist our faith’s voice to Los Angeles. This is an easy process for your Council. Get permission from the Pastor, put up the Banner, announce the coming at each Mass, and make the bull horn for our faith louder than ever.
Also included in this email is a Letter from the Archbishop, an audio clip to remind you how KHJ sounded many years ago when it was a Top 40 music station, plus a promotional message by Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers, announcing this new Catholic station (clickhere to listen). Please obtain your Welcome Kit today.
This new radio station will become a part of a network of 33 radio stations in the 5 western states and Hawaii, called Immaculate Heart Radio. This radio network has a long history with the Knights of Columbus in other regions, since their very first station was launched 18 years ago. Immaculate Heart Radio has also agreed to help us promote Knights membership “on the radio” when they begin broadcasting in Los Angeles. And like the Knights, they have a very special devotion to Our Lady and a commitment to faithful service of the Catholic Church. His Eminence, Archbishop Gomez recently wrote a letter stating:
I am confident the priests and people in the Catholic community in Los Angeles will join me in welcoming and sporting Immaculate Heart Radio.
So remember to:
Ask your pastor for permission to post the banner (3’ X 8’) and hand out the welcome kit materials: posters (11″ x 17″), fliers (8.5″ x 11″) and bumper stickers.
- Email KofC@IHradio.org to order your free banner and Welcome Kit (note your council no., parish name and city) and please post on or soon after Nov. 17th.
- Please forward the launch invitation email (attached) to your lists.
