The first day of the pledge drive is a smashing success!

At the tail end of the day, Salt and Light Radio has surpassed its daily goal. There is still time to pledge though! Please call in and reach one of our helpful operators before the day is over! Deacon Mike Lowe is on the air now!

Hard at work in the phone banks!

During the St. Marks hour, some Knights of Columbus volunteered to answer phones in the phone banks. They are hard at work in there, but not entirely busy, so they are ready to answer your call!

We are still in the St. Marks hour, with more guests like Anne Marie Reuter to come! Stay tuned and pledge your support!
