OF RADIO MARYJA
This is Radio "Maryja" - the Catholic voice in our homes. Praised be Our Lord Jesus Christ and Mary, the Virgin. With these words our station greets its listeners everyday since December 8, 1991.
Radio Maryja is a nation-wide, catholic radio station that broadcasts its programs in the FM band, in both low and high frequency range. This Marian station aims to propagate the evangelical hope to all Poles living in Poland and abroad. The program of Radio Maryja focuses on three topics:
- prayer - in which we unite through the recitation of the three parts of the Holy Rosary, liturgical prayer, meditation, Chaplet to the Divine Mercy. Everyday we participate in the Holy Eucharist and on Wednesdays in the Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
- daily catechesis,
- live interaction with listeners over direct telephone connections to the studio, particularly in the program "The Unfinished Conversations".
In the pursuit of its pilgrimage "around the Earth", each Monday Radio Maryja visits parishes located in different parts of Poland. These visits are accompanied by a nation-wide broadcast. Also, the Radio transmits ceremonies of many important Church feasts and celebrations held both in Poland and abroad. The Radio has already worked in Fatima and served the peregrination of Our Lady of Fatima in Russia.
