Bruce Wawrzyniak is the host and creator of Catholic Sports Radio. He was born and baptized Catholic, has spent the majority of his professional career working in sports, and is a veteran broadcaster and podcaster.
His faith life includes being an Oblate to the St. Leo Abbey in west central Florida, participating regularly in a monthly men’s prayer group through his church, being the president of a weekly Christian Business Connections group, and being part of the Cursillo movement, having been attending monthly Ultreya meetings for a few years now and being scheduled to make his weekend in the Fall of 2019.
It’s not scores and statistics—Catholic Sports Radio is a weekly podcast located at the intersection of your faith life and your sports life. The show helps listeners find the right balance and priority when it comes to their faith life versus their sports life.
Listen along as interviews are done with guests who are Catholic and a professional within sports—current or former athletes, coaches, officials, clergy, administrators, and more from the pro, amateur, and scholastic ranks.
