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 and the Gospel for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, we will hear highlights from some of the ten appearances that Father Leonard Klein made on Catholic Forum since his ordination to the priesthood in 2006. Father Klein was the Rector of the Cathedral of St. Peter, Pastor of Saint Patrick and St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception Churches in Wilmington, Delaware, and Director of Pro-Life Activities for the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.
