Welcome to the website for the voice of Catholicism on the airwaves in southeastern North Carolina. You're at the right place if you want to learn about or listen to truly Catholic shows like Catholic Answers Live, the Drew Mariani Show, and many, many more including our own Carolina Catholic show.
Carolina Catholic learns about Courage
and about Hospice Care
In our two June shows, we addressed two issues facing many Catholics today, namely same-sex attraction and hospice care. In our first June show, we talk to Father Paul Check, Executive Director of Courage International, a ministry for our Catholic brothers and sisters with same-sex attraction; the goal of Courage International is to strengthen one’s relationship with Our Lord. In the second show, Carolina Catholic welcomes back Jan Rack, a local RN, who will speak about hospice care and our Church's teaching on what we need to include when we prepare "living wills" or "advance directives for health care," a document that the Diocese of Raleigh provides on its website.
This shows will air Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm. The first show, on Courage International, will air the first two weekends; Saturdays, June 6 and 13, and Sundays, June 7 and 14. The second show, on hospice care, airs the following two weekeds; Saturdays, June 20 and 26, and Sundays, June 21 and 28.

Ribbon Cutting on May 1
The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, presided at a ribbon cutting ceremony in honor of the expansion of Catholic radio in the greater Wilmington area and Southport on Friday, May 1, at Philips’ Plaza on Oleander Drive. This ribbon cutting ceremony took place at one of the towers that will soon broadcast Wilmington Catholic Radio from the Bradley Creek area.
Now We Are Two
As of May 1st, Wilmington Catholic Radio is proud to have two stations in Wilmington broadcasting authentic Catholic programming. The original, WBPL-LP at 93.1 FM, broadcasting from the downtown area, is now joined by WJSI-LP at 91.7 FM, broadcasting from the Porters Neck area. We're not done yet. Two more stations are in the works: one near Bradley Creek and one in Southport. The latter will improve reception to the lower reaches of New Hanover county, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.
Also of note is that we've completely revamped our program schedule. Check it out by clicking on Program Schedule in the menu to the left. We're confident you'll find even more great Catholic programs to listen to.
Finally, improving and expanding reception has greatly increased our operating expenses. Please consider supporting us by clicking on the Donate link to the left.
Theology of the Body
Reverend Michael J. Burbeck, Parochial Vicar at St. Mark Catholic Church, talks with Carolina Catholic about St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body which is a term used to describe a series of talks given by St. John Paul II from 1979 to 1984 on the topic of his integrated vision of the human person. These talks, often referred to as "Human Love in the Divine Plan," beautifully describe St. John Paul II's teaching on love, life, and human sexuality. His reflections are based on Scripture and contain a vision of the human person truly worthy of man. In this show, Father will also discuss how Natural Family Planning respects and works with the theology of our bodies.
This show will air Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm. That is, Saturday, May 2nd and 9th, and Sunday, May 3rd and 10th.
