EPIC Radio is a new show, currently airing on Divine Mercy Radio (103.5FM Wake Forest, NC), that is geared towards young adults and their quest to get closer to God.  We pride ourselves in seeking out the truth and having the passion to live it.  We’ve discovered that radio is a great way to spread His word and message to everyone in the area, especially those that are non-believers.

EPIC Radio currently airs at Noon on Fridays, during Local Fridays, and again at 3:10pm after the Divine Mercy Chaplet.  If you’re out of the area, you can listen online live at WDMR.org or subscribe to our podcast on iTunes and Google Play.


Our patron Saint is Dominic Savio.  You can read more about him here.  Dominic Savio, PRAY FOR US.
