A Note From Jay Fadden
The other day I was walking through the halls of CatholicTV and reminisced about the past and pondered the future. It was very early in the morning so I was all alone at CatholicTV. I thought back to the early days with Father Frank and Jack Lawless. We had some wonderful times and a lot of laughs. Every achievement seemed new, each success was ground breaking. Msgr. McInerny succeeded Father Frank as Director and his friendship continues to be one that I still cherish.
Today Father Reed is the Director. He has brought CatholicTV to new heights with his vision, creativity and energy. We meet every morning at 7am to discuss the day. It is the one meeting that I look forward to because every discussion is about the advancement of CatholicTV. I realize how fortunate I am to be working here.
Every decision that I have made over my life has led me to my current position. God has been good! It is in realizing this that I become keenly aware of how important you are in bringing the Gospel message of Jesus into millions of homes. Your prayers and financial support have made all of this possible and for that I am eternally grateful. Some of you may live alone and I can picture you filling out the envelope and check on the kitchen counter or by the television. For some of you it is a great sacrifice and yet you give so willingly. I want you to know that your donation helps so many others, both young and old, who would not be able to participate in the Church. It is through your generosity that lives are impacted and changed. You are truly a friend to CatholicTV.
Thank you for your trust in us and know that we trust in you.
