2015 Spring Care-a-thon

Your 2015 Spring Care-a-thon is packed with inspirational stories, faith journeys

and the best in national and local guests!

There’s 35 hours of local programming that include special editions of Iowa Catholic Radio Today at noon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday featuring live conversations with Al Kresta, Teresa Tomeo, Gary Zimak, Allen Hunt and Mike Aquilina!

Teams from across the area will share their stories and ask for your financial support in order to raise the most money! The team that does so wins dinner for four to give to their pastor or favorite priest at Latin King, courtesy of Bob Tursi.

Spring Care-A-Thon is almost here!

The Spring Care-A-Thon on Iowa Catholic Radio is the week of March 23-27!  It’s a fun time when our listeners join us in our mission “to help save souls through the power of the Holy Spirit and to proclaim the Gospel”.

The funds raised this year will go toward major renovations at our AM radio station’s tower site.  The towers are fine, but the anchors for the guy wires attached to the towers need extensive work … and it’s expensive.  Your support is really needed and very much appreciated.

A beautiful blue sky is the only thing pretty about the needs at our towers.

Thank you to everyone helping to make the Spring Care-A-Thon a success:  the volunteers you hear on-the-air; the “behind the scene” workers answering telephones, mailing out pledge gifts and handling many details that make the Care-A-Thon interesting to listen to, enjoyable and easy for our listeners to participate.

And a special “Thank You” for calling in with your pledge.

With your prayers and support Iowa Catholic Radio will continue to “Connect Listeners with Christ”!

Rise and shine at 7am with Iowa Catholic Radio TODAY.  You’ll get Jeanne Wells Weather, the news, sports and guests provide a warm and welcoming addition to your morning.  Jon Leonetti, Mark Amadeo and Jeanne Wells have a special connection and all the credit goes to the Holy Spirit.

Jon Leonetti was raised Catholic, just like all three of us, and took a turn at seminary to discern a call to the priesthood.  After walking across America with a buddy from seminary, not only did he gain a grass roots perspective on the Catholic youth of America, but also discerned he was called to marriage.  He and his wife, Teresa, just celebrated their second wedding anniversary and were blessed with a son in 2012, Joseph.  They are expecting their second child this summer.

Jon is an up and coming star on the international speaking circuit and you can find more information about Jon at www.jdleonetti.com.

The most common question asked about Dowling Catholic Hall of Famer Mark Amadeo is why.  Why do we call him Dowling Catholic Hall of Famer?  Mark has been announcing games at Dowling Catholic High School since he was a student at Dowling!  For his 30+ years of dedicated broadcasting service, Mark was inducted in the Dowling Hall of Fame in 2010.  Mark’s son, Alex attends Grand View College; Mark and his wife, Mary, have a kindergarten daughter, Gracie, who attends Holy Trinity Catholic School.

If Jon is the up and coming star, Jeanne must be the setting sun of the bunch.  As the senior member of the Morning Show team, she is the youngest to the broadcast world.  Even though she is known for Jeanne Wells Weather, her true love of the show is the opportunity to pray with and for our family of listeners.  Her own family is all grown up;  son, Evan and Mandy have two beautiful girls, Katelyn and Ryann.  Daughter, Chelsea and Andy, added grandson, Drew, in November 2013 and are expecting their second this summer.

The mission of Iowa Catholic Radio is to ‘teach, defend and evangelize the Catholic faith’.   Jon, Mark and Jeanne are blessed to be a daily witness for their faith, and pray that their voice can help someone find their voice in giving praise and thanksgiving to God.

Thanks for reading this blog and please let us know what you would like to hear — including behind-the-scenes with our guests and the ministry of Iowa Catholic Radio TODAY.

Blessings!
