Volunteers needed

Radio CorMariae, like any of our Franciscan apostolates, operates by means of divine providence. This means that the staff who runs the station are all volunteers who felt that they want “to do something beautiful for the God” (Bl. Teresa of Calcutta). They choose to spend their spare time for the service of propagation of the Gospel through this means of communication. They felt the need to do something for others by making it easier for others to know the Faith. In spite of generous response of many, we still need more volunteers. Presently we are seeking volunteers in many and various positions at Radio CorMariae. Please consider helping in one or more of the following ways:

  • – Web & social media
