Spirit Catholic Radio is the station I listen to 99% of the time. KVSS has enhanced and advanced my Catholic formation. KVSS is a "breath of fresh air" for society. It is authentic, very informative and a "safe" radio station for whole family. KVSS does an excellent job keeping the community informed of events and opportunities. It is a blessing to be associated with the staff and volunteers at KVSS. Thank you for this amazing Radio Station.

• I joined a Bible study that started last week in Omaha. I have to say I was delighted to hear all the testimonies about listening to "Spirit Catholic" radio and it helped people return to the church or to find it. I would say 90% of those in attendance brought up the fact that it has made a difference in their lives!

I began listening to KVSS shortly after they began broadcasting in 1999. It's been a joy! It's an uplifting radio station which teaches me many things. Great on-air hosts explaining the faith & how to live in this crazy world! I have several favorite programs throughout the week & tune into the app when I'm traveling. I won't leave home with out my Spirit Catholic Radio!

Listening to KVSS has helped address and improve my spiritual walk, parenting and improving the relationship with my spouse! I listen in the AM, over lunch and on the drive home and always find a few good nuggets out of the programs that resonate with something going on in my life that I can take home and apply. Since listening to KVSS in the early 2000s, I've become more involved with the station from helping spread the word at festivals to helping the station raise money at their fundraising events. It's a great nonprofit with a great message & content for the whole community to take advantage of!

Love Listening to KVSS in the mornings on way to dropping of kids at school, and then work. And then again at night on the way home. The kids are excited every morning to the "good book" audio version; especially the experts who come on afterwards to summarize what they heard! I like Listening to on the way home to various topics via EWTN broadcast that helps me help or respond to those not only within my own faith, but Protestants and Atheists as well. Good stuff. When i do get out for lunch, I'll also listen to the Dr's In where I can always gain some nuggets that relate to things I may be going through or someone I know. great stuff!!

Many years ago, I knew my prayer life needed a boost. Driving 24 miles to work everyday, I had the habit of listening to books on CD--mostly gory murder mysteries--on my daily commute. I decided to give one week to listening to Catholic Radio only just to see if I could engage a little more fully in my faith life. Sixteen years later, my only pre-sets on my car radio are for Spirit Catholic Radio so that I can listen across the state of Nebraska.

My days are not complete without listening to Bruce & Jen--like good friends--to Kresta and Catholic Answers Live on my way home. Running errands at noon, I will listen to Dr. Ray or Dr. David Anders. Quite often I get into the Chancery, and we begin conversation with something one of us just heard on KVSS, or something will come up on our morning break about what we heard or about some upcoming event. My coworkers may see me in the morning, sitting in my car, and they know I'm listening to "one last bit" of what is being said on KVSS.

My prayer life IS better; my LIFE is better!

Give yourself a one-week challenge--your brain, your speech, your heart, and your soul will be better!

Spirit 102.7 is a welcoming place to volunteer. A smile greets me as I enter and exit and the employees are happy. They have a busy schedule but take time to visit for a few minutes. Its great to hear about their kids, grandkids and life. This station has spread the word of Jesus and into several states. I love that I can turn to the station while in my car and can listen as I drive to wherever I'm going. During Care-a-thon week its interesting to see where all the calls come in from worldwide. This station gives me the spiritual food I need.

I learned to pray the rosary with Msgnr Peter Dunn at the 10pm rosary while on my way to work. Now I lead the rosary ( shared weekends with two others) for the congregation on Saturday’s It has been a blessing to me. Also now my husband and I listen on our way to work and pray the rosary and listen to the readings of the day- followed by Sr Ann’s reflection.

I have been listening to Spirit Catholic Radio for over 5 years. I really appreciate the variety of programs guests, and topics that KVSS offers.It is a Spiritual Smorgasbord! I tune in mornings to Jen and Bruce and Matt on my way to mass. My local favorites guests include Father Taphorn and Sharon Doran and Faith Alive with Bruce Prenosil. Dr. Ray is always a treat at noon, and In the afternoon I enjoy Al Kresta. If I am driving home later at night I find praying the rosary with Monsignor Peter Dunne to be the perfect way to end my day. Listening to Spirit Catholic Radio has enriched my spiritual life and I often recommend this station to my friends just as a dear friend did to me.

I am a recent convert to the church. I started listening to Spirit 88.3 with the rosary in the morning, and then writing for Called to Communion. But without the radio network I would have not have the tools needed to enter the church last Easter. And now i am looking to go back to school to get a degree in theology and the more.

I discovered KVSS, Spirit Catholic Radio about 6 months after they went on the air. My 20 yr marriage had just ended. I was so lost and in tremendous emotional and spiritual much pain. Spirit Catholic Radio pulled me up and set me back on my feet. Every time I turned it on I heard exactly what Jesus knew I needed that day. Even though my life circumstances have changed, over all the years it’s been on the air, it continues to renew and strengthen my faith in God and myself. I can’t imagine life without Spirit Catholic Radio.

Spirit Catholic Radio KVSS is instrumental in my faith life! I discovered this wonderful station early last year while I was focusing on deepening my faith in general. I had been told about KVSS by my sister and had seen yard signs and car window stickers for a long time but never thought about tuning in. The first thing I heard when I switched the dial was the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. I was mesmerized. I didn't know it existed. I left the radio on 102.7 and have listened faithfully ever since. I love the Spirit Mornings show with Bruce McGregor, Jen Brown and Matt Willkom, especially Ask a Priest, Good Book Club and all the other guests who are featured on the show. I am not able to listen much during the day because of work, but when I get off work in the evening, I listen to Catholic Answers Live from EWTN that Spirit Catholic Radio brings to us. My faith has been strengthened so much by listening to Spirit Catholic Radio because a lot of things that have been cloudy in my mind for much of my 63 years here on Earth have been cleared up. May God Bless Spirit Catholic Radio KVSS with many, many more years of broadcast excellence.

This radio Network has evolved from a small station with an antenna on top of a 60' pole 15 years ago.
Since then they have continued to build a network that reaches hundreds of thousands around their home.
They are very solicitous of opinions and needs of the listeners, find creative ways to reach out, and have a fabulous focus on their mission.
Volunteers, staff and pretty much anyone with whom they have contact is treated with the utmost respect. They have been able to recruit and maintain top notch people, and there is a high degree of transparency in all aspects of their operation

As a volunteer, I have had the opportunity to serve according to my talents. I also have been lifted up when talking to others about the station, as it has a significant positive impact in their lives.

This organization exemplifies the best profits of a not for profit

I can't honestly think of one single thing that would be negative about Spirit Catholic Radio. Their radio hosts are so vibrant, honest, funny, sincere and full of God's love. The programming is superb! I've been listening for many years now and I listen to nothing else. I am so drawn to all the programs they have on that it is very difficult to ever turn the dial. Each and everyone of them teach me something new each day. They also sponsor many events that I've been to. They are out in the communities regularly and that is appreciated so much.

I had come back to the Catholic Faith in October of 2014 after being away for over 30 years. I wasn't satisfied with my usual radio station as I drove to work so I said a prayer and then turned the dial. What I heard amazed me.
A beautiful, sweet voice was praying the Rosary. I could hardly believe that I had tuned right to this and that it was music to my soul. Later I found out it was Sr. Mary Lucy.
I continued to listen and soon after heard another kind, wise voice came on, Sr Ann Schields.
Since that day KVSS had been there to guide me, teach me and help me to grow closer to Jesus and my beautiful Catholic Faith.
Now my mornings are not complete with my "Sisters" to pray and guide me.
Thank you Spirit Catholic Radio for helping this revert fall so in love with the beauty of our Faith and into Christ's arms.

The content of Spirit Catholic Radio programs speaks to every heart, for we are drawn to the Truth. Even if I have just tuned in, or if I am listening while I make a brief trip in my car, I invariably hear something that teaches, inspires, explains, or deepens my knowledge of my Catholic faith. Whenever I listen to Spirit Catholic Radio, I learn more about my faith and grow in my love for Christ.

I love listening to Spirit Catholic Radio, 102.7, KVSS.
I have learned a lot about my Catholic Faith, and am still learning. I was not a very good practicing Catholic before I started listening 15 years ago.

Not only has it helped me but also my entire family. I am so grateful. My kids have grown-up in the faith and are wonderful adults. They are better Catholics than I am! It would not have happened without the radio on KVSS whenever the kids were around me. Then they started listening on their own. It gives me great peace of mind.

The programming is solid Catholic teaching. The programs and guests are informative and fun to listen to. It is a great way to evangelize because the top personalities in the Catholic Faith do the preaching and teaching. I truly believe that God is working through the radio and I feel like I must support the station so that the Word can continue to be spread all across our country. Our country needs it now more than ever.

KVSS is definitely an asset to the radio listening public. Anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic Church or in deepening his/her relationship with Christ will benefit from listening to KVSS. This has been my experience.

The programming is substantive, informative and entertaining. Spirit Mornings is an exceptional program that is locally produced which features Catholic related news, events and interviews with an emphasis on Nebraska and western Iowa.

KVSS excels at spreading the Good News and introducing people to Catholicism because of the professionalism and the commitment of the people who work there. This has inspired me to volunteer with the station. More communities need radio stations like KVSS.

Years ago I noticed a void in the local radio offerings with no stations in my listening area having a Catholic foundation. I enjoyed Christian radio, but always felt there was something missing. I prayed for such a station to become available and shortly after heard of an Omaha Catholic station looking to expand into the Lincoln area. I sought and found ways to assist in actually making that happen and to my great joy, KVSS is now filling that void in my radio life. The programming is enlightening and uplifting and many good works abound. Spirit Radio, you make my day!

I've been an avid listener of KVSS the last 10 years or so. I've benefited greatly from their message in how to treat others, how to handle being a father, best practices for dealing with kids and a greater understanding of my faith.

Over the years, I've become more involved from donating time during care-a-thons, donating money on an annual basis, to offering insights on how the station can reach and bring on new listeners; especially the youth. It's a great time to be Catholic and a great time to help out nonprofits like KVSS, who has a great staff of "saints in the making" and BIG heart as they dedicate their time to ensure God's message is revealed to all who are willing to listen!

God bless,

The following are testimonials VSS Catholic Communications INC KVSS has received from listeners:

"The devotionals, daily prayers, saint of the day ... all these give me opportunities throughout the day to stop and reflect and pray. I love listening to Kris McGregor and Inside the Pages. Dr. Ray makes me laugh and gives me hope that I'm not insane as a busy mother of 7."

"I love learning more about my faith and being able to keep my faith in my ears when I'm in my car or at work. It has been great listening to local on-air personalities, priests and bishops and really feeling more a part of not just the Lincoln Diocese, but all three dioceses in Nebraska."

"I love hearing about my faith and building up this faith as I drive around town. It's nice to hear the truth coming through the radio and reminding me that I'm not alone, that there is a greater faith community that proclaims Jesus in the fullness of the Catholic faith."

"When you have worries and troubles that go with life, the Holy Spirit has you turn on Spirit Catholic Radio and there is always a program especially for you, and it touches your heart profoundly and you are able to pick up and move in in faith this time."

"The staff is filled with love for God and the work they do and you can't help but want to be a part of that energy to spread our faith with the world around us. We are all disciples! The regular opportunities for prayer and reflection probably hooked me first of all. Then the more I listened, the more I found other parts to the programming that were directed toward something either I or someone else was going through in their life."

"I have the radio on at work sometimes and on occasion co-workers have come into my office when the Angelus or Rosary is being prayed and they will ask me about what they are hearing. My three favorite programs are Morning Prayer with Fr. Lewis - a wonderful way to begin the day and to ask God's blessing upon us and whatever concerns us; Reflections by Sr. Ann Shields, Deacon James Keating and Fr. Larry Richards; and Crossing the Goal."

"I can set the dial to Spirit Catholic Radio, and leave it there because there is never a reason to change to another station. Before SCR, I would change the dial constantly to move away from commercials that were annoying or even sometimes a little offensive, however, with SCR, there's never anything offensive, so I even listen to business underwriting on SCR. Also the ability to continue to listen to SCR while driving on long trips is fantastic. As one signal begins to fade, I can find another signal and continue with the same program 50 percent of the time. and it's free. What hooked me on SCR? It's true, there's nothing fake, or for that matter political. It's just solid teaching of a solid universal faith."

"I really like the Q&A programs. I have had a lot of my own questions answered by listening."

"I can't tell you how much I've learned from Catholic Answers Live, and the Angelus at 6 p.m. that sounds like it is being sung by monks sends shivers up my spine."

"This helped me understand what I already believe! I always trusted the church, but now I've learned so much as to why the church taught us the things of our faith."

"It's funny - the more you listen, the more you listen. Other stations become harder to listen to after Spirit Catholic Radio."

"I like praying the rosary along with the bishops or whoever is leading it. I enjoy hearing Fr. Ryan Lewis as he reads and gives a brief homily on Morning Prayer and I deeply appreciate praying the Holy Mass with whoever is saying Mass.I feel as if I am really participating."

"Catholic radio is my primary source for good, solid, and faithful Catholic teaching. You helped me return to the church in an Orthodox manner, rather than on my own terms. Keep broadcasting the truth of the faith as a counterweight to all the foolishness and nonsense that exists out there. I like the teaching programs, especially apologetics, which is more and more important in a hostile world. Also the airwaves can always use more prayer and devotion."

"When I am occasionally asked a general question about my Catholic faith, I attempt to answer and then encourage the person, they they are interested in the Catholic faith, to tune into Spirit Catholic Radio."

"I love Catholic Answers. I am a cradle Catholic and I have learned so much about this faith I have had all my life. I am so happy to have the coverage area extend into Northeast Nebraska so that many more will be able to hear your wonderful programming."

"It's so welcoming ... you don't admonish people for their sins, but rather show a spirit of forgiveness and happiness when people return to God. This has helped me to become more forgiving and understanding. I also appreciate the sense of humor - it reminds me I don't have to be serious all the time. I can have fun while enjoying my faith."

"I did not get good catechesis as a child growing up and I find that I am learning something new every day. Catholic radio has deepened my desire to know more about my faith. One of my favorite things is when a priest or bishop is on and he gives a blessing at the end of the time slot. For some reason that just makes my day all the better."

"It's truly Catholic. Years ago I heard Steve Ray talk about his book, 'Crossing the Tiber.' I bought the book and became an invigorated Catholic, my husband joined the church and I am a member of the RCIA team at my parish. I love Spirit Catholic Radio."

"Catholic Answers Live hooked me and now I love all programming on Spirit Catholic Radio. I am Lutheran and am very likely to convert to Catholicism."

"I appreciate that although it is Catholic-centric, it is not exclusive. It seeks to involve the entire Christian community."

"I like not having to censor the information as my children are in the car. I like listening and learning as I drive. There is always a message I receive on the radio that addresses an issue I may be struggling with."

"Being a teen, I really enjoy listening to music that gets me 'pumped for God!' This helps especially in the morning or long drives - it keeps my mind off the time and on God as well as starting my day out right and giving him praise."

"I like how everything is scheduled with not too many of the same type of programs in a row. Good mixture of prayers in between national and local programs. I also like how the number of programs that talk apologetics has increased over the last couple years."

"I love Catholic radio. It feels like family. I learn so much about our faith that I didn't know. It helps keep Jesus in my mind, keeps me connected to the church and helps me strive to be a better person."

"I like the morning show, interviewing different people, the inspiration I receive. I also like the Care-a-thons and hearing different individuals' stories, their faith journeys. That's probably one of my favorite things - hearing people talk about their struggles and triumphs in light of God's grace."

"The reason I like Catholic radio is because it provides a solid Catholic outlet where I can tune in at any time and hear something uplifting or enlightening, which makes me want to become a better Catholic and deepens my appreciation for my faith."

"Local shows like the morning show with real people discussing real issues in a candid manner using the Catholic faith as a basis for a holier life."

KVSS is a blessed organization bringing "Christ to people, and people to Christ" as they say often on their station, and it is true. Omaha is such a wonderful community filled with generous and committed people and it shows up in some really amazing ways. One of those is the Spirit Catholic Radio station that expanded several years ago and now broadcasting a clear and powerful signal across most of the great state of Nebraska. The message delivered is a true blessing in my life and the programming is some of the best you can find anywhere in the US. It is run by a unique and faithful group of individuals who are fabulous stewards of the gifts given to them. It is evident in the way others are called in many different ways to help them and the joy that is evident in the staff and volunteers.

KVSS radio is a blessing in my life. Their programming is of the highest caliber and provides a great deal of comfort and hope in our ever increasing secular world. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be only a radio dial away to the spiritual fruits, insightful commentary, and God's great message of love for us.
