Faithful to the traditional teachings of the Supreme Magisterium of the Church; defending the Splendor of the Truth to refute the 'Dictatorship of Relativism', dissent and false ecumenism; seeking unity in one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism in the One Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ, 'the ground and mainstay of the Truth'.

Saint Gabriel Communications - International

  Letter of Recommendation

   In 1998, in the Archdiocese of Perth, Western Australia, a new standard was raised to defend the Faith of the Apostles among the Catholic laity ‘down under’ by means of putting Logic at the service of the Faith to re-evangelize the baptized - Saint Gabriel Communications, founded by Raymond and Theresa de Souza.

    From its office located at the Cathedral Parish Centre and counting on the blessing and support of His Grace the Archbishop of Perth and Metropolitan of Western Australia, the Most Reverend Barry J Hickey, Saint Gabriel Communications set in motion a series of talks on Catholic Apologetics  in Catholic schools and parishes.


 The series lasted for twelve weeks, and covered the essentials of the Faith: The Divinity of Jesus Christ; His Resurrection; the Church He founded; His Real Presence in the Eucharist; the Sacrificial nature of the Mass; the Marian dogmas; the Papacy; pontifical infallibility were among the topics chosen to address at the Cathedral Parish Centre.

   Soon talks were given in other parishes and Catholic schools, and shortly thereafter Saint Gabriel Communications hit the airwaves with the first weekly Catholic radio broadcast: “Sounds Catholic”, produced and hosted by Raymond de Souza and sponsored by the Most Rev. Barry Hickey, Archbishop of Perth. In his section, “Radio Replies,” Raymond answered write-in questions on faith and morals.

    The success of that program led to a live call-in talk show called “The Layman’s Hour” which he produced with his wife, Theresa. Every Sunday evening for two years, Raymond and Theresa enlivened the airwaves with news, interviews, reports and animated exchanges with callers. The Layman’s Hour was the first and only live talk show run by Catholics in Western Australia.

   But St Gabriel Communications did not remain in Western Australia: regular speaking tours were organized in all states of Australia. Catholics in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart and Brisbane plus a variety of small cities in the interior attended the talks given by Raymond on a variety of subjects, especially of late on the issue of the Islamization of the Western world and the suitable response of Catholics.

   Today hundreds of Catholics in all Australian states receive CD’s and audiotapes Saint Gabriel Communications on a monthly basis in two distinct apostolates: the Legion of Saint Gabriel (training of the laity to defend the Faith) and the Marian Eucharistic Alliance (Devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist and the rediscovery of the sense of the Sacred in Catholic liturgy).

For the first time in her History, Australia exports Catholic Apologetics!

   From Australia, conference tours were organized in the United States, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Austria, France, Portugal, South Africa and Singapore.

   In the United States, Saint Gabriel Communications works in close cooperation with the New Evangelization Office of the National Shrine of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Pennsylvania, of which Raymond is the Chairman.

   Speaking engagements may be booked for Raymond to address a variety of Catholic issues anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

   His talks are also available in CD format from St Gabriel Communications.

   From radio St Gabriel Communications has already expanded to television: Raymond’s work has been featured on EWTN Global Catholic network. His first series, “Good or Evil: Who Decides?” reaches millions of homes worldwide via satellite, cable and internet. This is already available in DVD format. His second series, “Jesus Christ, true God and True Man”, masterly defends the divinity of Jesus in the face of the growth of secularism, agnosticism and Islam.

     Under the aegis of the Archangel St Gabriel, who brought the good news of Christ’s Incarnation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, St Gabriel Communications co-operates with like apostolates in Oceania and North America and expands its work of Catholic Apologetics worldwide today, putting Logic at the Service of the Faith to Re-evangelize the Baptized.
