The WSFI 88.5FM dream of establishing a Joan Carter McHugh Catholic Resource Center will become a reality, thanks to our successful Shareathon -with these Carmel High School Students pulling out all the stops to urge listeners to give the gift of the Catholic Faith. They sing, they evangelize, and they speak about how important it is for us to keep the Catholic Faith alive for generations to come.
They could have been home studying for tests.. but they decided to put their faith into action. Anyone worried about the future holds, will love to hear that they are alive and well, and committed to all things good and holy in our Faith.
Great job David, Joe, Mike and Szymon. On behalf of the WSFI listeners, we are eternally grateful.
