The President General of the International Confederation of the St. Vincent de Paul Society was born in Singapore, is based in Paris, is making a rare visit to Phoenix, and we talk with him.  Also on The Bishop’s Hour today, Scott Bagshaw has a unique approach to youth ministry, and he’ll share that with us.  And then, since May is the month of Our Lady, Fr. Joseph Terra will walk us through Marian history and devotion.

The Bishop’s Hour is a program produced by and for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, presenting Church news and theological reflections, discussing contemporary issues facing today’s Catholics in Arizona, and featuring a weekly message from Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted. It airs each Monday at 10 a.m. on 1310 AM Immaculate Heart Radio in Phoenix. Encore presentations can be heard each Thursday at 9 p.m.

The Bishop’s Hour is brought to you in part by our good friends at the non-profit Catholic Cemeteries and Mortuaries of the Diocese of Phoenix.

We’d love to hear from you. Send us your feedback at
