“As we have learned during this testing time living under the shadow of COVID-19, we cannot afford to take ‘normal’ for granted and need to further develop ways and means of maintaining our spiritual growth and communion with God, even if we are deprived of attending Mass regularly,” Perth Archdiocesan Vicar for Communications Fr Peter Whitely said.
The series includes each of Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB’s homilies, dating back to 2015, which have been read and recorded in a manner that harks back to the golden age of broadcasting, when newsmen were trained in the use of their voice.
“I am genuinely hoping that the style in which we have produced these podcasts really appeals to our older audience, as well as attracting a new, younger audience to engage with the content being produced on topics that affect all of us as Christians, no matter our age,” Fr Whitely said.
Stories such as Archdiocesan appeals, candid interviews with key leaders, stakeholders and anyone with a story to tell, as well as themes such as adult faith formation, social outreach and Christian life will be presented in this new format.
The podcasts are available via the Archdiocesan website, Apple Podcasts and Spotify by searching “Archdiocese of Perth” or “The Record”.
