Brian Patrick, a popular host of the Eternal Word Television and Radio Network, will be the featured speaker at Divine Mercy Radio’s annual banquet from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 9 in the Little Theatre of Holy Family Elementary, 1800 Milner in Hays.

His talk is titled “Mercy in Motion,” about his personal experience of God’s mercy. Patrick will tell his story and also talk about some of the interesting people he has interviewed through the years.

“It will be a different talk than we’ve had in the past,” said Donetta Robben, executive director of Divine Mercy Radio. “Brian Patrick will be entertaining, humorous and spiritually motivating. When we hear these personal stories, it makes us realize how God is working in our own lives.”

Patrick is co-host of EWTN’s “Morning Glory,” which airs at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday on Divine Mercy Radio, KVDM in Hays and KRTT in Great Bend, both at 88.1 FM.
