Each year, Real Presence Radio (RPR) holds annual fundraising banquets in cities throughout the listening area. These banquets help provide a major portion of the funding needed to continue to air some of your favorite Catholic radio programs.

In our diocese this year, two banquets will be held: Tuesday, December 1 in Sioux Falls (Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel) and Thursday, December 3 in Aberdeen (Dakota Event Center).

Popular Catholic speaker Dr. Ray Guarendi will be the keynote speaker for both events. He’s a Catholic father of 10 adopted children, a clinical psychologist, author, professional speaker, and national radio and television host. His radio show, “The Dr. Is In,” can be heard Monday through Friday on RPR. Dr. Ray has a wide variety of experience working with parents, families, educators, substance abuse programs, in-patient psychiatric centers, juvenile courts, and private practice. He has witnessed the common time-tested factors that consistently contribute to success in marriages and families.

Dr. Ray captivates audiences with his humor-laced presentations filled with practical advice and proven techniques for successful marriages and families. In addition to the parenting and family genre, Dr. Ray, an adult “revert,” speaks on many topics concerning the Catholic faith and apologetics.

RPR is dedicated to answering the call of Pope John Paul II for a New Evangelization. Listeners enjoy a mix of devotionals, prayers, call-in programs, the daily Mass and both local and national programs about the Catholic faith.

If you would like to help RPR keep their mission going, event sponsorships are available, or you can host a table or just join as a guest.
