Catholic Radio Stations in Africa retransmit our daily programme
On the continent, the main outlet for our daily English Africa programmes will continue to be through the re-transmission of our daily broadcasts by several Catholic radio stations.
Most of these radio stations are owned by various African Catholic dioceses, parishes, religious congregations and some by the Radio Maria network.
We thank you all for this important collaboration.
