Go Ask Your… Archbishop!

The Most Rev. Bernard Hebda, Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and member of the Relevant Radio® Board of Directors, can now add radio host to his résumé. Archbishop Hebda guest-hosted a very special LIVE broadcast of Go Ask Your FatherTM at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in West St. Paul, Minnesota. Glen Lewerenz of Morning Air® served as emcee for the broadcast.

It was the first Go Ask Your Father broadcast hosted by an archbishop and the first to be broadcast via Facebook LIVE, garnering thousands of views. During the broadcast, some of the 380 students at St. Joseph’s School asked questions of the archbishop, and he in turn asked questions of them!

Some of the wonderful questions included:
Archbishop, have you ever met someone who has become a saint?
Why do men and women have different roles in the Church?
When someone dies, do they become a guardian angel?
How did you know that God wanted you to be a priest?

If you were there behind-the-scenes, you would have seen all the middle school students wearing their Relevant Radio sunglasses during a break to say, ‘It’s cool to go to Catholic school!’ It was a fun day for all who participated, and we thank Archbishop Hebda, St. Joseph’s School, and The Aim Higher Foundation for their help and hospitality.

Listen to the full audio and stay tuned for more news from this wonderful day!
