Operating a radio station requires broadcasting and studio equipment; tower, office and studio space; utility, communications, and computer server services; professional engineering, legal and electrician services; and marketing services. All of these are expensive and we depend on donations to make this happen.

The most urgent need we have is for your prayers. Pope Leo XIII wrote of Thomas Aquinas in his 1879 encyclical Aeterni Patris, “that, single-handed, he victoriously combated the errors of former times, and supplied invincible arms to put those to rout which might in after-times spring up.” Our era is one of intense theological and philosophical error. By broadcasting Relevant Radio and other communication efforts, we hope to be the voice of truth calling out in the wilderness that puts to rout that error and brings back the joy for which we are made. Please help us make this a reality by, right now, saying a prayer asking the intercession of the Angelic Doctor.
Rosaries, Holy Hours, and other prayers of intercession for our success in spreading the Lord's Word and accomplishing His mission for us are greatly appreciated. We are especially grateful for the intercession of Saint Thomas Aquinas (our patron saint), Gabriel the Archangel (patron saint of communicators and broadcasters) and the Blessed Virgin Mother.
Aquinas Communications is an all-volunteer organization -- we are led by a volunteer Board of Directors and all activities are done by volunteers. (Except for the professional services, such as legal and engineering services, although some of those are donated [Thanks!])
We are in need of creative and energetic people who can help us bring Catholic Radio to the Dubuque area. If you have talents in marketing, graphic design, web site and server administration, radio station operations, sound engineering, or other activities related to our operations, please contact us.
We are not seeking locally-produced content or ideas for local content at the present time, but once the station is broadcasting over the air, check back to see when we will be taking that next step.
