January 2018 update:
New Podcast “Truth of the Spirit”
Entering the 21st century of Evangelization, members of St. Vincent de Paul now share their witness with people on the far corners of the world through a new podcast network that is simple to use for anyone with a smartphone or a computer. Patti Brunner, head of Patriarch Ministries and active leader in Adult Formation, has joined local parishioners in the Padua Podcast Network. Her show ‘Truth of the Spirit’ relates her personal experiences with the Holy Spirit and the teachings of the Catholic Church in a bold new way. Her show will cover topics that instruct listeners in living a life in the Spirit. The topic of the series that will launch her podcasts on ITunes and 20 other podcasts networks is “Working through the Chaos of the World to Find Supernatural Peace”. This audio broadcast is free and is available also by subscription. Subscribing to a podcast means that you will be given notification of new shows when available. Podcasts are easily available through apps on smart phone called “Podcasts” and through the podcast category on ITunes. Just ask for “Truth of the Spirit” and play or download to listen at your leisure. To hear the introduction to “Truth of the Spirit” click on the links on this page. Other initial shows on the Padua Broadcast Network are “Wonderful Life” by Tom Rohr about local philanthropists and “Running: A Fever” by Michael Davis, the journey of one man’s quest for change through running. Patti Brunner, whose radio show “Living Seasons of Change” is available in the archives of Paduamedia.com, is familiar to those attending the Arkansas Catholic Charismatic Conference where she has served as the Emcee for the past few years.
