He thanked them for spreading God’s word and teachings through the radio. His visit on October 13 then included a blessing of studio and office space. He had an opportunity to see the equipment and hear the enthusiasm of the Radio Maria England volunteers.
Radio Maria England’s office and studios are located at Lincoln House, The Paddocks, Cherry Hinton Rd, Cambridge CB1 8DH. They have been broadcasting since November 2019.
Since starting, they have added live broadcasts of Masses from Blackfriars, Cambridge, the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Norwich and the National Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham.
There have been daily rosaries, as well as music, religious formation, and family programming. A group of Radio Maria staff and volunteers also undertook a five-day pilgrimage from Cambridge to Walsingham.
