Bishop Skylstad begins regular radio outreach
the Inland Register
(From the March 1, 2007 edition of the Inland Register)
Bishop William Skylstad will be reaching out to Eastern Washington Catholics through the medium of radio beginning Thursday, March 1.
His first program will air on Sacred Heart Radio, 970 AM, at 4 p.m. The program will repeat that evening at 7 p.m., as well as Saturday at noon, and Sunday at 7 p.m.
Present plans call for the bishop to produce a half-hour program every other week. The schedule is similar to Archbishop Alex Brunett’s programming schedule on Catholic radio in Seattle.
During the program, Bishop Skylstad is interviewed by Deacon Eric Meisfjord, Director of Communications for the Spokane Diocese, on a number of current issues and his ministry, including his work with victims of sexual abuse, seminary formation, and ongoing efforts by the Church locally and nationally to combat sexual abuse.
