Thousands of African parishes to get Catholic satellite radio

.- In an effort to reduce the digital divide separating the Church in Africa from the rest of the world, two organizations have launched a project to provide satellite radio to thousands of Catholic parishes in the continent.

The joint initiative of Faith Satellite Radio (FSR) and the World Catholic Association for Communication (SIGNIS) hopes to reach about 17,000 African parishes this year.

FSR and SIGNIS will be broadcasting high-quality digital Catholic programming to 31 countries in Africa, courtesy of Vatican Radio. The broadcasting will be available in nine different languages.

The new initiative offers both delivery of a satellite radio receiver and the broadcasting technology and content. The radio receiver is equipped with a data port that transforms it into a wireless modem capable of downloading data to personal computers; thus the radio can also broadcast multimedia content.

FSR will be offered to African parishes through the ‘Adopt a Parish in Africa’ campaign. For $38 US a month, parishes or individuals outside of Africa can “adopt” an African parish and offer them the FSR service.
