[creative-radio] Zambia: Catholic Community Radio stations


VATICAN CITY, OCT. 12, 2009 ( Here are the English-language
summaries provided by the Vatican press office of the interventions given
today at the Eleventh General Congregation of the Second Special Assembly
for Africa of the Synod of Bishops.

H. Exc. Mons. George Cosmas Zumaire LUNGU, Bishop of Chipata, President of
the Episcopal Conference (ZAMBIA)


We have also been blessed in the area of social communications where we
now have Catholic Community Radio stations in all but one of our ten
dioceses. The radio stations are playing a big role in our evangelizing
mission, such as the promotion of good governance and civic education.
Rural communities, where illiteracy is very high, are now finding their
voice, freely articulating their faith on radio on matters of justice in
their own communities. Most of our radio stations also routinely make
space for non-Catholics.
