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 2:00 p.m.. ET each Saturday afternoon. Catholic Forum is a production of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.
