ABOUT CRADIO – www.cradio.org.au
Cradio is a non-profit organisation seeking to put new technologies to the service of the Church in Australia.
Cradio was founded in 2010 under the guidance of Bishop Julian Porteous, and is the only outlet of its kind in Australia. It is a free service that includes a variety of Catholic programs, talks and music available via the 24-hour audio stream, or on-demand on the website and iTunes.
At the heart of Cradio’s activities is its mission to ‘nourish the soul of the digital generation’, or in the words of our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI, to ‘evangelise the digital continent’. By providing news, catechesis, discussion and entertainment they hope to create a place where Catholics and non-Catholics can go to learn about and celebrate the Catholic faith free from the skewed messages presented in secular media.
