Archdiocese of Philadelphia Special Programming


This page is dedicated to special programming offered by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for our listening audience.  Currently we are featuring the Year of Faith lecture series as well as the second annual Pro-Life Summit in Philadelphia.

The Year of Faith Lecture Series featured noted speakers on some of the most compelling topics related to Catholic faith and identity, and their engagement with the modern world. The series offered Catholics a deeper understanding of the true meaning of faith, its authentic content and its orientation towards the transformation of the world around us.  To learn more about the year of faith visit Archdiocesan Year of Faith website.
