Founder of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Radio to address Vermont Catholic Professionals
Donna McSoley, founder of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Radio, will be the keynote speaker at the next meeting of Vermont Catholic Professionals.
The first Catholic radio station in Vermont, OLPH 105.5 FM was established five years ago by McSoley with the support of Archbishop Christopher Coyne and the Diocese of Burlington.
“Radio was something entirely new to me so each step was a challenge, but I learned to turn to prayer and to have great faith in God to sort it out,” she said. “With faith, we can do anything.”
In prayer and gratitude to God for helping her through a difficult time, McSoley wanted “to return the favor,” she said. She had received a letter from the Catholic Radio Association to spread the word that the Federal Communications Commission had announced an opportunity to apply for space on the FM dial. “As I read the letter, I was 100 percent clear that the Lord wanted me to do this. Radio was brand new territory, but God led me through every detail.”
McSoley will speak to members of Vermont Catholic Professionals on Oct. 18. The group will gather at 8:30 a.m. at diocesan headquarters at 55 Joy Drive in South Burlington; the speaker will begin her presentation at 9 a.m.
