On today’s program we’ll learn about how to talk about our faith to our non-Catholic friends who have questions with Ryan Hanning, the director of Parish Leadership Support of the Diocese of Phoenix. Then we’ll talk to Frank Di Bugnara of Veritas Pictures about the new documentary, “The Rite of Exorcism – Myths, Mystery & Hope.” (See related story in The Catholic Sun.) Joyce Coronel and Michael John Poirier will give us details of a concert planned in support of the Chaldean Catholic Community in Phoenix. Finally we’ll hear the fifth in Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted’s series on the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, which goes into effect on Sunday, Nov. 27, the first day of Advent.

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. Music for The Bishop’s Hour courtesy of Carrick Ministries.

We’d love to hear from you. Send us your feedback at radio@diocesephoenix.org.
