Fun and Festive

a podcast marathon," says Fr. Roderick Vonhogen, CEO of SQPN. "We are
still about $7000 short of the amount we raised last year. Hopefully,
people will help us to meet our goal so we can continue to evangelize
with new media. As a non profit organization, we completely rely on
donations from our listeners."

to use new media and the internet for the new evangelization. With
over a quarter of a million downloads each month, the organization has

would need an additional $40,000," says Fr. Roderick. "It seems
impossible, but we trust in God's providence. If it's His plan, He
will somehow make it all work."
