Thank you to Catholic Radio Stations in Africa

Our daily English Africa programme continues to be re-broadcast, everyday, thanks to cooperation with several partner Catholic radio stations on the African continent.

Most of these radio stations are owned by various African Catholic dioceses, parishes, religious congregations, and some by the Radio Maria World Family network.

We thank our partner Catholic radio stations in Africa and you our listeners for this essential collaboration.
