RADIO MARIA IRELAND continues to grow across the island of Ireland! We welcome you to join the team, and we invite you to get involved with Radio Maria’s mission which is to bring Christ into every home through Prayer, Catechesis, Music, and Formation. Join us for the official launch of our Belfast studio on September 7th for the Vigil of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary at St. Mary’s Church on Chapel Lane, BT1 1HH. We will be starting the evening with a 5:30pm parish rosary, followed by Holy Mass at 6:00pm. After Holy Mass we will have a talk with teas and coffees. Radio Maria is a charity organization, and therefore, we rely on our volunteers to help us in the running of Radio Maria. This launch and information night is a great opportunity to learn more about Radio Maria and how you can get involved as a volunteer. Please feel free to pass this message on to all your friends and family! We hope to see you all there. For more information contact us at or call us at 00353 1 412 3456.
