About WJVM - 90.3 FM


In 2007,  a group of Our Lady of Victory and St. John the Evangelist parishioners, working with the State College Knights of Columbus #4678, began preparations to bring Catholic radio to Central Pennsylvania.  In 2010, the FCC issued a station permit for WJVM (90.3 FM) as a non-commercial educational FM station. 


On the air since April 2014, WJVM (90.3 FM) is an ad-free, Catholic radio station managed by volunteers of the 501(c)3 non-profit Voice of Divine Mercy.  WJVM is an affiliate of We Are One Body® (WAOB®) Radio Network in Latrobe, PA.  WJVM broadcasts Catholic programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


WJVM reaches more than 100,000 residents in Clinton, Centre and Blair counties, and an endless stream of travelers along the I-80 and I-99 corridors.  This audience includes members from six parishes, including:

  • St. John the Evangelist

  • St. Kateri Tekakwitha

  • Holy Spirit

  • Our Lady of Victory

  • Good Shepherd

  • St. Matthew


Also, two universities, three hospitals, four prisons and numerous nursing facilities are reached by WJVM.

Why Catholic Radio?

Our Blessed Lord makes it clear through His holy Church that He desires to bring all people into loving communion with Himself. Today, the Holy Spirit exhorts each and every one of us to participate in proclaiming the Gospel message in every way possible, including through the use of modern media.
