Mark Allgaier is a Parish Ambassador at St. Petronille in Glen Ellyn, IL and he is Relevant Radio®’s August 2019 Volunteer of the Month!
Like many Parish Ambassadors, Mark started his relationship with Relevant Radio as a regular listener, but after seeing the effect listening had on his life, Mark wanted to share that experience with his fellow parishioners.
Sharing why he became a Parish Ambassador, Mark said, “The Relevant Radio Ambassadorship became a desire for me after I was a regular listener and was inspired by the various programs and their hosts. The content was real and thought-provoking. I signed up to become a member of the St. Joseph Society as my relationship with Relevant Radio continued to grow. I attend Mass daily and wanted to share Relevant Radio with my fellow parishioners. My pastor agreed to sign me up as the Parish Ambassador.”
Being part of a parish with many active ministries, Mark set up a display in the Parish Life Center at his church. He explained that it is a great way for parishioners to keep their faith a part of their life, even after they leave the church buildings.
“The parish display is statically outside the indoor doors to our Parish Life Center and the traffic past the display is terrific,” he said. “It includes our entire parish from the school students, youth ministry, to our elders who use the Parish Life Center for a continental breakfast twice a week. Our pastor and parish priests attend this breakfast. I enjoy interacting with each of the groups … and it’s rewarding to use the resources around my parish to spread the word about Relevant Radio and build up our faith.”
