Lusaka, Zambia, Oct 30, 2013 / 01:04 am
Catholic television is coming to the southern African country of Zambia following years of effort by the Zambian bishops conference.
"It has been a very long wait, but worthwhile," Father Paul Samasumo, spokesman for the Zambian Episcopal Conference, said in an Oct. 24 statement published by Vatican Radio.
He said the Zambian bishops decided to use radio and television especially as a means to evangelize as far back as 1995, when they made media use a "pastoral priority."
"The bishops decided that they would use especially radio and television as means of evangelization," the priest continued.
