FERNDALE, Mich. (March 31, 2008) – It was The Da Vinci Code that triggered Michael Voris’ “road to Damascus” moment. A devout, knowledgeable Catholic with more than twenty years of television broadcasting experience, Voris planned to produce a one-hour TV program to refute the distortions and outright lies about Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church that were being disseminated by the novel and the movie. Very quickly Voris realized that the challenges facing the Catholic Church in the United States were much larger and more pernicious than a single blockbuster, and so he planned something much more ambitious than a single TV special.

Financed by a substantial withdrawal from his own retirement fund, and with the help of generous volunteers, Voris built a television studio in Ferndale, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. He christened his new venture—St. Michael’s Media—placing the new company under the protection of the captain of the angels who drove Lucifer from Heaven. As for the television program, Voris chose a name as uncompromising as the great archangel—“The One True Faith.” The program began airing in the Detroit area in September 2006.

Voris knew exactly what he wanted “The One True Faith” to be; a straight-talking, informative, unabashedly orthodox program presented in an appealing, occasionally humorous way. Protestant televangelists had mastered this format years ago, but Voris knew that his experience in secular broadcasting could provide a production level that could compete with most mainstream talk shows.

Voris’ approach worked. Fervent Catholics, lukewarm Catholics, and lapsed Catholics tuned in to watch Voris tackle the tough questions about Catholic doctrine, Church history, and the Catholic viewpoint on contemporary issues. Accolades from laity and clergy started pouring in, and Voris and his team were delighted to learn that non-Catholics were watching the show, too. In less than two years St. Michael’s Media has expended into markets from New York to California, from Ontario to the Philippines.

In 2007 Voris began hosting a conservative Catholic radio talk show, “News and Views Weekly.” Like “The One True Faith,” the radio show discusses contemporary issues from a Catholic point of view. Every broadcast is smart, entertaining, and when it comes to the hard questions, Voris and his correspondents never pull their punches.

In addition to radio and television, St. Michael’s Media has produced an apologetics series and a three-part DVD series titled “Where Did The Bible Come From?”—all endorsed by Archbishop Raymond L. Burke of St. Louis.

When he isn’t in the studio, Voris is on the road. In parishes, at conferences, at retreat centers—wherever Catholics meet—Voris has become a sought-after speaker. On topics that range from the origins of the Bible, to the facts behind the decline of the Catholic Church in the West over the last 50 years, to the spiritual warfare that rages within every soul, Voris delivers a dynamic presentation that gives Catholics the facts, the inspiration, and the courage to face the challenges of living the faith in a society that is indifferent if not openly hostile to religion.

Shortly after his election Pope Benedict XVI called for “a New Evangelization” that would use new tools and new methods to bring the Gospel to the whole world. St. Michael’s Media has responded to that call.

    Hi, I am prolife and have been for 36 years. I am a Christian, but went to Catholic church when I was first married. I was raised in the Presbyterian church. Through the years raising my family I saw the moral decline of our culture plus the assault on Jesus and biblical teachings. I learned about the killing of unborn children in the Catholic church and subsequently every area of life that had been sacred now was no longer. I appreciate Michael Vorris' clear and concise commentary regarding the "gay mass" that was held in Boston. I live in Massachusetts and we are surrounded by promotion of sin. What is sad is I see protestant pastors who also by the absence of speaking against the sin help in perpetuating it. Kids today don't hear that homosexuality is a sin. Also it's rare that anything controversial is mentioned in many protestant churches. In the end as was mentioned in Michael's dialogue, people are separated from God because of their sin and left with the heartache that results from being involved in activities that destroy lives. Today kids have adults who are allowed in schools to tell them they may feel like they are the opposite gender they were born with (in elementary grades). Many proabortion or prohomosexuals are extremely angry as they defend their lifestyle. They aren't happy. Somebody has to love them enough to speak out rather than ignore the sin or embrace it. I appreciate Michael's approach which does speak to Ezekiel's warning to warn people they are sinning.
