Catholic Forum

Each Saturday, Catholic Forum brings you a brief reflection, the proclamation of the Sunday Gospel by a Deacon or Priest of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, a musical selection, an interview of 15-20 minutes in length, and on most shows, an episode of Modern Day Witness, by Father Rich Jasper. Catholic Forum is the longest-running Catholic talk show on radio, having begun in 1939 on a radio station in Wilmington, Delaware. It is now heard every Saturday morning at 11:00 on Relevant Radio 640 and is heard in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area as well as throughout the State of Delaware and Maryland's Eastern Shore. As soon as it finishes airing on the radio, a new program podcast debuts at 11:30 a.m. ET each Saturday Morning. Additionally, “FLASHBACK” is a Catholic Forum interview that aired sometime over the last 20 years. It is exclusive content for podcast listeners and debuts each Wednesday morning. Catholic Forum is a production of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a brief introduction, the Gospel for the 5th Sunday of Lent, and a cut from the Catholic Treasures CD, we celebrate the 80th birthday of Catholic Forum with a visit from a man who hosted this program for 30 years, Mr. Gene Donnelly. We look back at how the program started on April 9, 1939, how it was instrumental in the formation of the Catholic Broadcasters' Association, and take a walk down memory lane with Gene who served as the Director of Communications for the Diocese of Wilmington from 1970 until his retirement in 2000. Catholic Forum is the longest-running (oldest) Catholic radio program in the country.
