Radio Maria USA is a Catholic radio network, headquartered in Alexandria, Louisiana, and is part of the World Family of Radio Maria.

Radio Maria was born as parish radio in 1983 in the Diocese of Milan, Italy.  Its purpose was to keep parishioners informed and to help them through prayer, the daily Mass and the Rosary.  It quickly spread to other parts of the world.

On May 25, 2000, the first English-speaking Radio Maria in the United States began broadcasting from its station in Alexandria, Louisiana.  Since that time, 10 more frequencies have been added.

Radio Maria currently operates in more than 40 countries, spreading the Gospel to millions of listeners in more than 15 languages.

Radio Maria USA features prayers and programming by local presenters and is made possible only through the work of dedicated volunteers and the donations of its generous listeners.
