Meet Deb Carey, Our September Volunteer of the Month!

Deb Carey is a Parish Ambassador at St. Pius X Parish in Westerly, RI and she is Relevant Radio®’s September 2019 Volunteer of the Month!

Deb explained how she began listening to Relevant Radio, saying, “At dinner one evening after coming home from his typical commute my husband Jack was excited to tell me about this incredible new Catholic Radio station called Relevant Radio. That was about 8 years ago. Unfortunately, Westerly (the town we live in) does not get the station via radio.”

“A few years later a dear friend of mine asked if I ever listened to Drew Mariani on Relevant Radio. I said no, we don’t get the station down here. She was excited to tell me that I can now listen live from my computer! I have been listening ever since.”

Deb shared that Relevant Radio has not only been a blessing for her, but also for her fellow parishioners! She explained, “For over 18 years I have worked as Parish Secretary/Bookkeeper and Bulletin Editor for St. Pius X Parish. I tune in almost every day. It is a great way of evangelizing. As people come to the Rectory for various reasons they listen too. Many times I have been asked ‘What station is that…who are you listening to?’ There are times I am working on the bulletin and perhaps something said on Morning Air® or The Patrick Madrid Show, Msgr. Swetland, The Drew Mariani Show™ or Fr. Simon Says™ that has inspired some of the meditations, catechesis and events sections that are put in the bulletin!”

Deb is not only a faithful listener, but also a Relevant Radio Parish Ambassador. She told us of her experience being a Parish Ambassador, and how it has helped her spread the Good News to all she meets.

“When I heard about the possibility of volunteering as a Relevant Radio Ambassador I knew in my heart this was a call from God. Volunteering as an Ambassador has been such a joyous and fulfilling part of my life and faith journey. The tools and materials that are sent have helped countless people to come to know Our Lord and Our Lady more intimately. To be just a tiny fraction of that…I am blessed!”

“Being a Relevant Radio Ambassador encourages me to keep spreading the Gospel, to bring out the God colors in the world, and to be a light,” she continued. “God is not a secret to be kept to myself. He is the Light of the World to shine on the highest mountain. Becoming a Relevant Radio Ambassador helps me to do just that, by the grace of God!”

Thank you Deb, and all our Parish Ambassadors, for all you do! Find out how you can volunteer for Relevant Radio, and consider becoming a Parish Ambassador in your community today!
