    Bishop England Catholic Radio WBEI Advisory Council

    Meeting Report: March 12, 2020

    Mission

    Support the development of Catholic Radio at Bishop England High School

    Goals

    Evangelization

    Education

    Catholic Community-Building

     

    Meeting Participants

    Lindsay Finneran (BEHS Director of Development), Joan Mack, Meghan Boyer (BEHS Director of Communications), Jason Burnette (BEHS radio installation and equipment coordinator), Edward Liu, Joe Mule, Clayton Burrous, Richard White, Frank Dirks

    Meeting Outcomes

    We discussed the possibility that virus mitigation efforts will require the cancellation of the kick-off event.  We decided to continue planning until such time as circumstances require a different course.

    Before the meeting Patrick shared his request to the Diocese for the Bishop’s role in the launch event, which would include a Mass, blessing of equipment, and a small gathering with special guests.  We are awaiting a response from the Diocese but will proceed as if that will be the schedule.

    Jason reported that Catholic Radio technicians have conducted and onsite installation assessment that resulted in changes to the original planning assumptions.  The antenna now will be mounted on the chimney of Building B.  The transmitter will be located in Jason’s work area.  This arrangement will require new high-speed fiber cable.  Frank will reach out to Michael Brennan on installation status.  (Since our meeting, Michael has indicated that after remodeling the transmitter room and fiber installation next week he anticipates providing a firm date range for installation and broadcast commencement.)

    Lindsay is the collection point for all individuals and groups to be invited to the launch day.  We agreed that she will manage two lists; the first for broadly announcing WBEI to the community and the second a smaller list of key individuals for participation in the special event with the Bishop.  Everyone should submit names/groups/contacts by the end of next week.  Frank will seek names of key St. Clare of Assisi parishioners from Father West.

    Frank has connected with the Knights of Peter Claver and they will participate along with the Knights of Columbus.

    Meghan will lead the logo development process involving Lindsay, Eduardo, Joan, and Joe.  They will accelerate the process to finalize the design by the end of next week.  All agreed on a two-color design.

    Frank, working with Lindsay, Meghan, and Patrick, will prepare a talking-point/case-statement by next week.  This will serve the message for our communications outreach that we will execute in collaboration with the Diocese communications office.

    Meghan will work with Eduardo, Richard, and David Seay on digital platform development.

    Joan has made contact with a Post & Courier feature writer, Adam Parker, and will make an introduction to our communications team.

    Clayton offered to be a point of contact for printing options.

    Next meeting: March 26, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. at BEHS

    We have conference call capability of you are not able to make it in person.  Please let us know if you need dial-in information.

    Thanks and God bless

    During a spring without sports, why not consider the Rosary with your free time?

    How to Pray the Rosary 

    The Introduction

    Begin the Rosary by making the sign of the Cross:

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Then say the Apostle's Creed:

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty, 
    Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ,
    His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
    born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. 
    He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; 
    He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. 
    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen. 

    Then say one Our Father, three Hail Marys (for the virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity) and one Glory Be:

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    The Decades and Mysteries

    The traditional Rosary is divided into three parts, each having five mysteries: Glorious, Joyful and Sorrowful. In his apostolic letter The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, Pope John Paul II proposed a new set of mysteries, which he called the Luminous, and which concern the period of the public life of Our Lord. For those who wish to say all 20 decades at once during the course of a day, they may be said in the following order: Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious. 

    For each decade of the rosary, announce the mystery and pray one Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and One Glory be while meditating upon some aspect of that mystery.

    The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the greatest gifts that Christ and his Church have offered us.  It is a living testimony to His Divine Mercy.  Yet it is often most difficult for us sinners to receive because we are afraid.  Opening our hearts to Christ in Reconciliation forces us to come to terms with our guilt, shame, pride, and doubt.  That’s why, remembering that Christ sent his disciples out in pairs, we can help our brothers and sisters by accompanying them to the threshold of Reconciliation.
