Carolina Catholic

Carolina Catholic is a locally produced radio show which highlights what Catholics are doing in North Carolina and around the nation. In its monthly broadcast, the host of the show, Judi Paparozzi, interviews local Catholics, our diocesan leaders, and Catholic leaders around the nation to find out how they are living their faith. These Catholic men and women are doing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy that we are all called upon to do.

The shows on Carolina Catholic also tackle the tough issues facing us in our everyday lives such as being pro-life in a pro-choice world, local poverty and what we can do to help, converting to the Catholic faith, the African American Catholic, evangelizing in a non-Catholic area, and other challenging and exciting topics.

From its initial broadcast in July 2007 to the present, the show has featured many of our diocese clergy members including our bishop, His Excellency Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, who graciously did five shows with Carolina Catholic including the 100th show in 2015. The show has featured Msgr. Jeffrey Ingham, Father Pat Keane, Father Michael Burbeck, Father Ned Schlesinger, Padre Marcos Leon, Father Bob Kus, Sister Isaac Koenig, SU, Father James Garneau, Father Dan Oschwald, Father Tony DeCandia, and other diocesan priests. Bishop Burbidge was also kind enough to speak with us about the Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral and the future plans for the Diocese.

Carolina Catholic welcomes ideas for future shows from the show's listeners. Some of the most exciting shows include interviews with politicians like Congressman Chris Smith, State Senator Thom Goolsby, well known members of the clergy like Father Benedict Groeschel, Priests for Life National Director Father Frank Pavone, Father Larry Richards, Father Myron Effing who serves in Russia, and Fr. Dwight Longenecker, a Holocaust survivor, Alfred Schnog,  as well as apologists Tim Staples, Patrick Madrid, and John Martignoni, and authors Immaculée Ilibagiza, Joseph Pearce, Jennifer Fulwiller, Judy Landrieu Klein, Matthew Kelly, Pat McCaskey, and Dr. John Bergsma. We have also featured great pro-lifers like Lila Rose, Melissa Ohden, Bev Jolly, Michael Clancy, Chuck Dean, and Jackie Bonk. This show has also reported from the diocesan conference, Ignited by Truth, for the past seven years.

Our show has also featured a story on the founders of Wilmington Catholic Radio (Bill Hamilton, Joe DeRobertis, and Jim Edens), as well as shows on pilgrimages to the shrines of Italy, Italian opera, the pro-life movement, home-schooling, the war in Afghanistan from a soldier’s perspective, the process of canonization, the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Marian apparitions, voting one’s conscience, Catholic traditions at Christmas, Catholic music, schools, and bookstores, mental illness, end of life issues, papal elections, the ordination process, Cursillo movement, and conversion and reversion stories.

Carolina Catholic airs on the first two weekends of every month. The one-hour show is aired on the first Saturday of the month at 11 am, and it is rebroadcast on the first Sunday at 6 pm, and at the same times on the second Saturday and Sunday of every month. Several months have included shows on all four weekends.

Carolina Catholic's wonderful show page and notes is produced by board member, Greg Decker, and the beautiful music heard each show is provided by the show's musical director, Barbara Gallagher.
