St. Peter the Rock Media, AM 1260 The Rock, is proud to be an affiliate of EWTN. Through EWTN, we receive quality Catholic programming at no cost via a satellite feed that includes programming from multiple Catholic Radio sources such as EWTN, Vatican Radio, St. Joseph Radio, Ave Maria, Catholic Answers, and other Catholic media sources from around the world.
The primary benefit of the EWTN affiliation is that EWTN has a rigorous review process for their programs, hosts and guests to ensure that our broadcasts will provide faithful Catholic content.
AM 1260 staff, volunteers, and the board of directors work within the spirit of the programming charter. A programming advisory committee, approved by the board of directors and working in conjunction with the staff, will assist in fulfilling programming objectives.
St. Peter the Rock Media strives to answer the call of Pope Francis, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and St. Pope John Paul II to bring about the New Evangelization of the Catholic Church. We believe a new spring time is upon us in the Catholic Church and we strive to strengthen the local Body of Christ in which we serve.
Through St. Peter the Rock Media for Cleveland, we will serve as a hub for promoting the teachings of Jesus Christ and his work through the many activities of the local parishes, Diocese, lay apostolates and Catholic schools and institutions. We want to help all souls to know, love and serve the Lord so that we can bring about His presence on earth and help all people be with Him in Eternity.
The mission of St. Peter the Rock Media is to provide quality Catholic programming that is faithful to the teachings of the Church and presented in a way that inspires conversion of heart and a deepening of faith while building up the local Body of Christ.
“To proclaim Christ in the media at the dawn of the new millennium is not only a necessary part of the Church’s evangelizing mission; it is also a vital, inspiring and hope-filled enrichment of the media’s message. May God abundantly bless all those who honor and proclaim His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the vast world of the means of social communication.” - St. Pope John Paul II, Message for World Media Day, January 24, 2000
St. Peter the Rock Media is a lay apostolate that declares absolute faithfulness to the Holy Father and the Bishops. We are bound to accurately and fully transmit the Faith as proposed by the Teaching Authority of the Church. We bind our broadcasting message to the standard of Holy Scripture and Catechism of the Catholic Church, the vehicles Christ has given us for knowledge, content and clarity. This commitment shapes our service to the faithful in the diocese in which we serve as well as our obedience to our local bishop, and our assistance to local priests and religious.
We are committed to the conviction that our programming must be primarily catechetical, devotional, and inspirational. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality Catholic programming that is upbeat, positive and inspires conversion of heart and a deepening of the faith, with humility, charity and respect, while offering an enriching message from our Catholic heritage for all believers and non-believers.
St. Peter the Rock Media seeks to connect and serve the people, parishes, schools, and lay apostolates within the communities we serve by spreading goodwill and providing the platform for sharing news, events, and stories that show how the Holy Spirit is working within our community.
