The programming schedule is structured around the holy rosary, which will be prayed on air four times a day. There will also be narrations of the lives of the saints, roundtable discussions on faith and culture, catechetical programmes and live talk shows, so listeners can call in and speak with the friars live on air.

As well as the scheduled programmes, the station has an archive including recordings of renowned Catholic speakers such as Archbishop Fulton Sheen and Fr Hugh Thwaites.
