Michael was the creator and executive producer for the six hour EWTN live broadcast, “One World Praying,” on which he also appeared and asked people of all faiths to offer 100 million Prayers for Life and Peace. He was the executive producer for live EWTN broadcasts from the National Basilica in Washington, DC, including “Children of the Eucharist” and a High Mass celebrated by the Papal Nuncio.
On two occasions, Michael also appeared on EWTN’s internationally broadcast show “Sunday Night Live” with guest host Father Andrew Apostoli, CFR, and was a Fatima guest expert on over a hundred radio broadcasts. Additionally, he was a keynote speaker for many conferences and conducted an Our Lady of Fatima statue tour throughout the United States.

Michael LaCorte stated, “I feel so blessed that Our Lady has called me to Father Fox’s Fatima Family Apostolate. I gained
tremendous respect for Father Fox and his Apostolate when Father Fox, Father Apostoli and I spoke together publically at a major Fatima event and then had the opportunity to spend some private time together. I was profoundly impacted by Father Fox and his work, which touched the hearts and souls of so many children and adults. Under John’s leadership, with your help, and with Our Lady’s guidance, the potential for Father Fox’s apostolate to strengthen the family and change lives is boundless.”
