Nairobi, 23 May, 2020 / 4:16 am (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops in Kenya are soliciting funds from Catholics and other well-wishers across the globe to facilitate the operationalization of their television channel, Ukweli TV Kenya, that would enhance the evangelization mission of the Church in the East African nation.
“We are appealing to all the Catholics in Kenya, all the Catholics in the world, those who follow us in many ways to come to the aid and support this TV (station) so that the word of God can be enhanced through our own means of social communications,” the Chairman of Social Communication Commission of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), Bishop Joseph Obanyi said in a video message shared Friday, May 22.
The funds being solicited are expected to help realize the Bishops’ TV initiative, which aims at having a television station with a nationwide coverage to serve the needs of Catholics in a country where many citizens cannot afford Internet for streaming online content.
According to Bishop Obanyi, the impact of Bishops in the secular media is restricted and thus “not able to impart catechesis and the teachings of the Church the way we always do when together.”
