Faith Fit Radio is a tool for missionary disciples of the local, young Church created by the Diocese of Orlando to enkindle a deeper faith among young adults and to help lead people to a faith that is fully alive! In addition to streaming EWTN national programs, Faith Fit Radio has introduced new local shows from priests, religious, and lay people in the Diocese of Orlando. 

“Ex Nihilo – Out of Nothing” hosted by Fr. Martin Nguyen, parochial vicar at St. James Cathedral and Steve Bucklin, director of adult faith formation at the Cathedral. Together, and with occasional guests, they engage in conversations about the life of faith and the challenges facing young adults and young families. Listen Tuesdays at 8 p.m. 

“From the Confessional” is a weekly podcast from Saint Peter Parish in DeLand. Father Thomas Connery and pastoral associate Rick Grinstead speak about church life from the inside. While the podcast is recorded in a confessional, it is no secret that they are passionate about reaching others for Christ’s Kingdom. Stories, laughter, and the beauty of our Catholic faith are at the center of this fun podcast. Listen Wednesdays at 8 p.m. 

“Heart Talks with Jesus” hosted by Sister of St. Joseph Kathleen Power, associate director of vocations at the Diocese of Orlando. She takes young adults on a spiritual journey each week with inspiring reflections and provides a peaceful guided meditation to help them grow closer to Jesus Christ through prayer. Listen Fridays at 8 p.m. 

“New Evangelization: Catholic Apologetics hosted by Father Emmanuel Akalue, pastor of Our Lady of Grace Parish in Palm Bay. With his characteristic joy, Father Akalue teaches Catholics how to defend their faith and covers a broad range of topics including: the deposit of faith, the Bible and Tradition, the Trinity, indulgences, family life, the Sacraments and Mary. Listen Thursdays at 8 p.m. 

“Renown Belief” hosted by Stetson student Elizabeth Triece. Elizabeth is passionate about bringing Christ’s word to those experiencing their amazing, wonderful, and often turbulent college years. With guest speakers and friends, she gets the scoop on what it means to be a Catholic in today’s society, and shares stories from young people on how their faith has helped to shape their lives. Listen Mondays at 8 p.m. 

“Saints Who Lead Us” hosted by Katherine Laguna of the Communications Secretariat of the Diocese of Orlando. Through lively discussion with weekly guests, Katherine and friends reflect on the lives of saints with plenty of laughter and pop-culture references to help young adults grow with courage, love and trust in God. Listen Fridays at 5 p.m.
