Catholic School Spirit Show

We produced a radio show & podcast to educate parents about Catholic Schools & affordability. This FB page is where we provide weekly updates & tips.

The radio show and podcast promoted Catholic Schools and educates parents on the importance of a Catholic education and community life to help raise children with morals. We also address the issue of affordability to make Catholic school attainable for more families. The host, Bill McNamee visits schools & records the show there. We also have special guests who are alumni who share various topics or their talents. Podcast versions of the radio show are found at www.CatholicSchoolSpirit.org 24/7. In August of 2015, a radio station in Iowa - KCRD 98.3 FM was interested in the show and is now broadcasting it on Saturdays from 11a.m.-12 noon CT (and internet streaming). Their station is the Aquinas Communications Radio Network - an Affiliate of EWTN- Global Catholic Radio Network. Currently the radio show is also broadcasted at North Central College station in Naperville, IL - a Christian college Sundays from 9 -10 a.m. (Both stations stream OnAir, Online & MobileApps) This page is managed by Genevieve Cano, Producer. To contact her for information or if you would like help with your digital media projects message Genevieve Cano, Producer at https://www.facebook.com/grcano Contact the host Bill McNamee with any questions about the future of his CSS show. The website is packed with information and photos so visit us there. After June 1, 2017 the shows can be found archived on the website. The collection can also be found on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/amtummi

Mission: Our mission is to connect families with Catholic School choices. We believe in the sanctity of families, and the enormous impact that a Catholic education can have on the lives of our greatest gift and most valuable resource, our children. We offer school reviews of the schools we have featured on our show & highlight alumni who describe the impact it has had on their lives. You can hear the first-hand stories from the guests on our show & receive more information on affordability. We hope to help families find a school and if they need information on financing for a home, we help with this as well.

"In these moments of questioning and eagerness, Katie realized how much she had taken for granted. After so many Mass experiences, it had become ordinary that bread and wine transformed into Christ. But the second-graders’ sense of wonder ignited a spark in Katie."
