Catholic radio stations to host Father Corapi at conference next year

Holy Family Communications will host a conference featuring nationally known Father John Corapi in August 2009 in honor of the not-for-profit organization’s 10-year anniversary. The organization operates Catholic radio stations in Buffalo and Rochester. Each known as The Station of the Cross, WLOF 101.7 FM out of Buffalo began broadcasting on Aug. 15, 1999. WHIC 1460 AM began broadcasting out of the Rochester area in 2003.


"Lord and Giver of Life: The Person and the Power of the Holy Spirit" will take place Aug. 15, 2009, at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo. Throughout the day Father Corapi, a member of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, will give four presentations about various aspects of the Holy Spirit. His various presentations will be titled "Theology of the Person and Power of the Holy Spirit," "The Gift Who Contains All Gifts," "The Holy Spirit is Given to Those Who Obey" and "The Spirit We Have Been Given is No Cowardly Spirit."

Father Corapi is a seasoned traveler and speaker who gave presentations at about 40 conferences and events each year until 2008, when he retired from public speaking, said James Wright, president and cofounder of Holy Family Communications. The Holy Spirit conference is the only speaking engagement Father Corapi has scheduled for 2009 thus far, he added.

"It is great news that Father Corapi has picked Buffalo for his one and only conference. He certainly picked us because of the great reception he’s received in Buffalo in the past," Wright said in a statement.

Father Corapi’s office manager, Tamra Sexton-Sprinkle, said the priest is from New York and thus has always enjoyed speaking in the state’s cities, especially Buffalo.

"Buffalo is his town," she said in a statement. "When he speaks there, a lot of family and friends come to see him. He’s known there, and has a good relationship with The Station of the Cross."

Reserved-seating tickets for the conference will go on sale in September and may be purchased for $35 or $45.
