ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Roman Catholic Archbishop Michael Sheehan will soon be hosting his own radio talk show.
The head of the Santa Fe Archdiocese will be heard on stations in Albuquerque and Gallup starting Sept. 8, and a Santa Fe outlet as of No-vember.
‘‘This is an effort to reach inactive Catholics and unchurched people as well as our own practicing Catholics,’’ Sheehan said. ‘‘The radio has helped people to come back to the faith.’’
Sheehan will appear regularly along with others on the show, which will air twice each weekday.
The Immaculate Heart Radio Network hopes eventually to cover all of New Mexico. Other programming includes Mass twice a day and the pope reciting the rosary three times a day.
The archdiocese has raised $600,000 for the network. The Catholic network, based in Tahoma, Calif., owns the New Mexico ‘‘mother station’’ in Gallup, for which the archdiocese is providing about $150,000 a year for operations.
