RENEW Africa Broadcasted to All of Southern Africa
by Sister Marie Cooper, SJC, RENEW Africa Program Manager
RENEW Africa, RENEW International's first small Christian community process developed in Africa, has now been “announced” beyond the confines of South Africa where it began almost four years ago. Radio Veritas, which broadcasts to all of Southern Africa (DSTV Channel 170 and streaming online 24/7), is known as The Catholic Radio Station "Good News for a Change." In early August of 2011, the station's Director, Father Emil Blaser, OP, interviewed RENEW's Sister Marie Cooper, SJC, the RENEW Africa program manager, at the Radio Veritas studio
This was a wonderful opportunity to spread good news about small Christian communities in the diocese of Port Elizabeth and the recent launch of RENEW Africa in the Archdiocese of Johannesburg. Not long after the broadcast, a priest of another diocese contacted RENEW and requested more information about the program. As the good news travels out on the waves of sound, we hope that many more will have the opportunity to experience
this great resource.

The interview is the result of connections made through the greater Dominican Network by Sister Honora Nolty, OP, Assistant Director of RENEW International.
