Bonn, Germany, Jan 10, 2020 / 16:00 pm
A news agency owned by the Catholic Church in Germany has launched an English language service, which it says will provide objective news and information on the Catholic Church in Germany.
The new service, KNA International, will consist of translated versions of stories written by the German-language agency, KNA.
KNA is owned by medienhaus, a subsidiarity of the Verband der Diözesen Deutschlands, which is the corporate and operations arm of the German bishops' conference. The agency says it is positioned to give objective information about the German Church to the English-speaking world.
The agency's Jan. 7 press release noted that "there is intense interest within the Catholic Church around the world in the so-called Synodal Path, the project for reforms in the Catholic Church in Germany starting at the end of January with a three day synodal plenary assembly in Frankfurt."
